I know all sticks are good for a fact, i tried each individually and it ran the system, I upgraded to SP1 at the cost of my on board sound driver (now useing vistas generic). There is nothing in my Bios about memory paging, is it just my board is to damn old? Does not matter to much ordered a EVGA 750i should be here in 3-4 days but im a born troubleshooter and need to learn to fix this.

What is the welcome center reporting ?

Also go to run,type DXDIAG ,if it asked u a quesiton answer YES,then in the first tab look in front of MEMORY and see what its reporting.

DXDIAG says i only got 3070, so im super confused right now, if EVEREST can see them how come the rest of windows cant? It says my page file is 5359MB

Page file has almost nothing to do with the amount of physical memory installed in the machine. Just that the default setting is roughly 1.5 times the amount of RAM.

What you need to do is check the Bios - There should be a setting that controls Memory Remapping. You may have to check the manual to see what it's called, since sometimes the name may not make sense... But what you want to do is make sure it's turned off.

The other thing to check: If I recall correctly, that motherboard has integrated graphics. Make sure that's turned off as well, since it uses a portion of system RAM as Video Memory.


See does that help.

The settings to disable your onboard video are in the Bios.

I have it set for strictly PCI-E and still im having the problem, already looked on my MoBo did a second check theirs nothing to do with memory remapping...

The culprit here is the Intel 945 Chipset. There is a newer BIOS version available for this Gateway OEM motherboard:

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/getFile.asp?...

A newer BIOS *might* free-up an additional 100MB ~ 300MB, but probably won't. In any event, the chipset is hard-limited to 32-bit address space and does not support memory remapping.
