What do I do to get my computer to read all 24 gig of ram? It only reads 16 gig ram.

My system is:
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium - 64 bit
Mother board: Gigabyte X58A -UD3R - Ultra Durable 3
INTEL CORE i7 processor (930) Ver # E85269-001 Product Code BX80601930 socket LGA1366
OCZ High Performance DDR 3 Memory (24 gig)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 - 1280 MB GDDR5 EVGA graphics card
Cooler Master RS-759-ACAA-E31101612997

I hope I didn't miss anything, please help!

Thank-you for your response. I've found out Windows 7 Home Premium only supports up to 16 gig ram - NO MORE! Please share this with your readers. Info is from the Windows 7 people.

All the Best

Yes, most know the limits of Pro, Home, Basic, etc. In addition, after you upgrade to either Pro or Ultimate -- you may run into a second wall in the BIOS.

Memory Config Protection {Enabled} ; ASUS {know - to use 24GB}

Perhaps No-Execute Memory Protect {Disabled} ; GA {I believe}
