Maximum RAM for Asus M2N MX SE

Hi

I have an Asus M2N MX SE motherboard. Yesterday, my 1 GB DDR2 667mhz memory went bad. So today I went to buy new one. There in the shop I saw a cheap bundle of 2x2GB DDR2 800mhz RAM modules (so, total 4GB RAM!).
Since I had lost my motherboard manual, I downloaded it from the internet(http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socketAM2/M2N-MX%20...). But unfortunately, the manual says that it supports only 2GB maximum memory, and each module supports 1GB maximum(total 2 modules)...So I seached for review of my motherboard on the internet, and in many of those reviews said that it supports 4GB max! While some review said 2 GB max! I am totally confused now and not sure what to do as the salesman at the shop says they wont take back the RAMs bought once they sold it.....So, my question is, does my motherboard actually supports this much memory? Has anyone with same motherboard model experience the same situation?
Please HELP!

Robin

Hi

I'm currently using this board with 2x1GB of GSKILL DDR2 and am looking to upgrade to a full 4x1GB myself.
Under advisement of a friend, I wanted to check to see if it'll register the full 4GBs or if it'll just see 3 of them like some other ASUS motherboards that claim to handle 4GBS.
I can't find anything online about it not handling the full 4GBs, so I'm going to purchase the other set of 2x1s and install them. Once I do I'll post again and let you know how it handled it.

4 gig max, if you are running 32bit OS then virtual ram is 2gig and PAE is from 1 to 2 gig depending on the mobos onboard features. Most MoBos will be from 3.0-3.25g seen by OS on 32 bit.

IE if a mobo has a 8g max even if you populate to the max on a 32bit OS you will only see 3 to 3.25 gig.

Hi,

I just had the same problem - this board has definite problems recognizing memory.

This worked for me:

Turn off computer (with power switch on back)

Remove old memory and install new - should be identical sticks in each slot

Pop out the motherboard battery (small screwdriver needed - careful!)

Replace battery

turn on computer

It should recognize the new memory (up to 4GB)

I now have 2x2G ram in this motherboard with no problems.

Works a treat with Ubunto 9.1 AMD64 version.
