  • memory identification problem

    Hi,
    I formatted my h.d and after installing the O.S the computer doesnt recognize the entire memory as it recognized before i formatted The computer identifies the 128 sdram memory as 64 as seen in my computer\properties
    I tried to change the slot with no success.
    details: pentium 2 400 bios: award modular v 4.51pg
    motherboard: ARISTO AM 639BX-S
    O.S WIN98 SE
    MEMORY: SDRM 128 (in one chip) pci 133
    Thanks,
    Yosi

        clue?

        Got another clue:
        When my pc boots the following message appears on the black screen before the o.s loads "suggested sdramcas latency time is "2"
        Is this related to the problem?
        Another thing: i added a 64 ram memory in the second slot and i reached a total of 128 (saw it in my computer: properties)
        Thanks,
        Bendi

          Have you changed any of the BIOS settings before you did the clean install?
          Did you add or remove any hardware before reinstalling?
          1 1 was a racehorse.
          2 2 was 1 2.

              Have you tried removing the second module, install XP and then replace the module?
              Some of the older motherboards didn't like double sided RAM modules. Is the RAM got chips on both sides or is it single sided?
