Asus P5Q users - Vista (64Bit)- RAM & Video memory reporting wrong
Dec 17, 2008, 5:27 PM
I just installed
Vista Ultimate SP1 (64 Bit)
on my new pc and i am having problem with vista reporting all wrong memory.
NOTE: Mobo Asus P5Q deluxe and I have already tried "Memory Hole Remapping" & ENABLED memory remapping through bios.
1] I have 4GB Ram and its showing, BUT, under System information its showing:
Total physical memory – 4GB
Available physical memory – 2.85GB
2] I have ATI 4870 1GB, but in "Dxdiag" under display, its showing:
Approx. Total memory – 2809MB
And in "Display settings -> Adapter" -
Total available graphics memory: 2815 MB
System video memory: 0 MB
Shared system memory: 1791 MB
Whats going on ?

Install newest Catalyst drivers from the ATI website and look again. Also update your Direct X.
