This BIOS feature controls how long the memory controller latches on and asserts the command bus. The lower the value, the faster the the memory controller can send commands out.

look in your bios to change it

edit: how much memory are you trying to use? in which slots are you putting the memory sticks?

can i edit the amount of memory and the slots they are in?

what you mean?
i asked in which slots are the memory sticks phisycally connected. I've look the manual of your mother board (you should do the same), they're supposed to be two, preferably identical, connected to the blue slots. Oh, and 1GB each, maximum.

hmmm okay, but how do you know that it's not working in dual channel? how much system memory does post shows you?

2 sticks of 512 and it says 1gig of ram, if i add anymore its says memory limitation and wont post anymore. i have a max of 2 gigs but the manual says only 256 and 512 stick are compatible so you cant get to 2 gigs?

it posts 1 gig, and when memory is added to the second ch it will not post.

ohhhhh ok, now i think i understand.
if you look at a table in the manual, you'll notice that only 256MB modules can be used on 4 memory slots in dual channel, giving a total of 1GB. If you want 2GB, you'll have to use 2x1GB modules, but the manual doesnt say if they'll work in dual channel, or if they'll work at all.

what a crappy board man
