  1. If I remember right, the PnP option does one of two things.
    yes lets the OS activate the cards when it loads.
    no lets the bios activate the cards before the os loads.

    You shouldnt see any problems with leaving it at no.

    Someone correct me if i am wrong.
  2. I figured it's going to be okay, but when I do decide to re-install, should I still install it as a Uniprocessor, or something different? What distinquishes which one you need to use?
  3. If you have one processor... Uniprocessor. If you have more than one processor... Multiprocessor.

    Simple.

  4. I know the diff between Multi and Uni, but what is the difference between ACPI Uniprocessor PC and Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC?

    And will the latter option allow me to use my new ram w/o any problems?
  5. It really shouldn't make a difference. I've never had to change whatever Windows detected... no matter what I've added. It seems very odd to me that changing that one thing would make a difference in how much RAM is there.

  6. It wasn't the amount of ram, but rather the manufacturer. I had CorsairXMS 3200DDR ram and went to OCZ Platinum Series 3200DDR RAM, and the OCZ just had an incompatibility with the ACPI settings in my computer... so I am still baffled. The reason I do not think the amount was the difference because I installed the OCZ 1 stick at a time and it still repeated the problems. No forum seem to know the difference between these settings.
