My new i7/Windows 7 build is having RAM issues. 4gb shows up in Windows but 6gb shows up in CPU-Z. I have three sticks of Corsair XMS3 DDR3 installed on an ASUS P6T Deluxe V2. The BIOS only shows 4gb and all settings are to AUTO.
I checked out each stick individually and they all checked out fine. I installed all three and the test hung again but when I re-booted Windows, it's all recognized now. Too weird. I re-seated those sticks a couple of times yesterday trying to figure it out. Oh well.
Thanks for your help.
Now something really weird is going on. Ever since I got it to read all 6gb, the system has slowed to a crawl. Takes several mouse clicks to close boxes. Seems as if every mouse click takes forever. I've even frozen once. Thinking about taking a stick out and seeing if it runs fine on 4gb.
I'm so stupid. I was working on my kitchen table for my build then moved everything to my office and that's when the trouble started. As it turns out, it was the transmitter for my wireless mouse. It was either too far away or getting interference from being too close to my external hard drive and my wireless router. DOH!
At least it was something simple!
