What OS are you running? Windows XP 32-bit version? If so, you will not see all 4gb of memory unless you are running a Windows 64-bit OS. It is a Windows 32-bit limitation.

 

However, there are a few tricks to get your motherboard to detect all 4gb and possibly get Windows to recognize more.

I am not familiar with your bios, but when I was running 4x 1GB of Ballistix on my xp-pro, I set the memory hole option to enable on the bios to see 3.50gb. When I used xp64 and set the memory hole, it saw 4gb. Right now on my DS3R, I have four of the Ballist on it and it sees 3.50.

No, for the AMD 3000 Venice there isn't any "optimizer" that needs to be used. I think you are referring to the "optimizer" for AMD dual core processors. You can use CPuZ to see if Windows "sees" the total amount of RAM that is installed. But even if certain windows based applications "see" all four gb of memory, that isn't what Windows is reporting.

For Intel CPU's all you need is the chipset driver which also contains the .inf file.

 

No other optimizer needed.

 

As for the freezing and other system instability . . .

 

Have you ran both Memtest and Orthos to determine if all of your hardware and subsystems are stable?

Have you tested each of your RAM modules individually with Memtest. You may have a bad stick. Also, when you are trying to run 4gb make sure to set CPC/CR to 2T. You can find that setting in your BIOS Memory Timing section.

Chan,

 

What is slik? Do you mean SLi?

 

You realize that in stock condition that the Ultra-D supports up to two video cards but not actually SLi right? i.e. the video cards cannot be "teamed' to create real SLi unless you mod the nf4 chipset.
