    New Ram Not Recognized

    As explained to me in this thread the AMD Winchester core will not recognise double sided memory sticks. So my question is this will the AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 Toledo see all 4 gig of ram? Also is this the last processor upgrade that will work on the 939 socket mother? Thanks In Advance

    So how do I go about doing this? And according to OCZ Windows will see 4 gig of memory before you install SP2.

    Anyone know of a more technical forum where I may find the solution to this at? So far I'm coming up empty handed. But when I read the DFI motherboard box it say's supports 4 gig dual channel? Thanks for any leads. I was thinkin maybe setting up a ramdisk and running the swapfile from there but the software OCZ sent me "Blue Screens" Thanks Again

    Best Sound Drivers

    Don't you have to toggle a pin to enable the nvidia? Also I thought the realtec was better.. sounding and more options? I could be wrong. Thanks
  11. Should I use the drivers from here? http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downlo...6&Software=True Or keep upgrading the drivers with these? http://www.majorgeeks.com/Realtek_AC97_Drivers_d4400.html Thanks

    How does incorrect SMBIOS affect my system? Usually, it has no impact on functionality or performance. SMBIOS data is intended for use by inventory and diagnostic programs. Microsoft Windows does not depend on SMBIOS information to be able to run properly. However, incorrect SMBIOS data can be a sign that the system maker did not do some basic quality control. If they did not get the SMBIOS data right, there is certainly a chance that they made other mistakes. How can I see all the SMBIOS data? PC Pitstop has a utility that will dump out all the information to a text file. To interpret the data you will need a copy of the SMBIOS specification (see below). You can download our utility at ftp://ftp.pcpitstop.com/pcpbios.zip. Can I fix problems with incorrect SMBIOS data? BIOS and system makers have utilities that can write to the SMBIOS data areas, but they do not usually make them available to end users. Sometimes the problems with SMBIOS are fixed through BIOS updates that will be made available by your system vendor or the manufacturer of the system board. If you cannot get a copy of the vendor's SMBIOS utility and a BIOS reflash does not solve the problem, then you will have to live with the data being wrong. Where can I find out more about SMBIOS? SMBIOS (also known as the DMI BIOS) is part of the work of the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF). The SMBIOS specification is available on their web site at http://www.dmtf.org/standards/bios.php.

    Description Results RAM installed 4096 MB Windows RAM 3071 MB Total RAM slots 4 Available RAM slots 0 Max RAM module size 4096 MB Memory Type 1024+1024+1024+1024;DIMM,Unknown,;T16 Speed Rating 8321 MB/s (100% of 490 similar) Memory Tip On virtually any system, memory is the best bang-for-the-buck upgrade, especially if you currently have 256MB or less. Installing memory is a snap, it just works and your PC is faster. PC World has put together a step-by-step guide if you need help. With prices so low lately I've purchased a lot of memory, and all of it has been from Crucial. Their prices beat the competition and they currently have free shipping. -- Rob Cheng, CEO, PC PitstopSpeed rating is measured in megabytes per second. The percentage indicates the performance of this system compared to systems in our database with a similar CPU and clock speed; the number of similar systems is also shown. For example, a score of 50% would indicate this system had half the performance of comparable systems; 200% would indicate twice the performance. A "normal" number is 100% plus or minus about 15%. The System Management BIOS is reporting that there is 4096 MB of RAM, but Windows reports that 3071 MB is available. The most common reason for this discrepancy is that your system uses some system RAM for the video graphics card or BIOS functions. This case is common in highly-integrated PCs with video graphics built into the system board, and does not require any changes on your part. There is a large discrepancy between the memory reported by the BIOS versus Windows. Often, this indicates a System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) problem and you may be able to fix it with a BIOS upgrade available from the vendor. SMBIOS results can be incorrect even if the power-on self test (POST) detects all of your installed RAM. For more insight into what your SMBIOS reports and why it can be wrong, download and run our SMBIOS reporting tools.

    Ok .. Thanks anyway .. But I'm not buying it. I can understand the winchester issue but not the BIOS when it keeps changing when I change settings and upgrading it. If windows can't recognise 4 gig then why is it reading 3.25 gig sometimes and 3 gig the others. Somthing is up. But I'll figure it out. Thanks for your paintance

    Looks like I'm still confused .. PcPitstop is now saying: " AMD #10ff0, 2200 MHz Memory 3071MB RAM Disk Drives C, D Video Sapphire RADEON X800 Internet MSIE 6.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322 Windows Windows XP SP2" Here is CPUZ Dump
