P5Q3 Deluxe Problems

Hey so I just built a new system and I'm having a few problems.
1: No sound - I ran the setup audio test and I can hear the White Noise but thats it also I an get the audio through the HDMI output of my video card.
2: RAM not showing in "View System Information" - in the Bios it show that I have 8124mb usable ram but in the View system info it shows only 3.25GB of ram.
ok the ram is because Im running Win XP is there a fix for this??

MB: Asus P5Q3 Deluxe
CPU: Core 2 Quad 2.83GHz @ 1333
RAM: Corsair 2GB DDR3 w/total of 8GB (4x2GB)
Video: Radeon HD4870 1GB Diamond ser.

  1. XP Pro what?? 32bit or 64bit
  2. How do I tell if I dont have the disk?
    I would guess 32 because 64 would show all ram i belive
  3. Follow the steps in the link below to determine if you are running 32bit or 64bit system.
  4. Well now im lost I used the link and I DO have 64bit XP and in the system info it show
    Total Physical Memory 8,192.00 MB
    Available Physical Memory 2.75 GB
    Total Virtual Memory 2.00 GB
    Available Virtual Memory 1.96 GB

    So its there but still not useing it. any ideas how to get it working?
    So it looks like I just cant use more then 4GB of ram with XP
  5. Have you checked your BIOS settings to see if memory remap is set to enable?

    BIOS Setup -> Advanced -> Chipset/Memory -> Memory Remapping = Enable
  6. First off dallasjoh thanks for all your help!!
    So in bios It is Enabled and says
    PCI MMIO Allocation: 4GB to 3328MB
    right below it but not that give me any options to change anything.
  7. Do you have the memory timings and voltage set to manufacture's spec's?
  8. It's all set to auto
  9. Download CPU-Z and see what speed your memory is running at and how much it shows is installed. You can get it at this link.

  10. Is your memory on the motherboards QVL list? Your sure it has the 64 bit version of windows!
  11. Wow Im and A-hole I miss read the system type I do have a 32bit system so sorry Im going to get the 64bitXP and see what happends

    Thanks again
  12. Sh*t happens. I was about to give up. Post back after you get the new OS and let me know what the memory is. LOL
  13. So I got the 64Bit ver. and now it shows all 8GB and my sound is working again so it looks like all is good now I just trying to see if the system is worth the money I upgraded

    From - To
    ASUS P4P800-E - Asus P5Q3 Deluxe
    Intel P4 - Core 2 Quad
    3GB Ram - 8GB Ram
    128Mb ATI All-in-one Video card - 1GB ATI HD4870 Diamond Ser.
    500Watt PS - 1000Watt PS

    and I most say It does seem to work really well when I push tested it but is reall slow to boot and when I was extracting a 4GB file it seem to take longer now then when I had 32Bit running
    maybe I'm just :pt1cable: Crazy
    Thanks again for all your help
