Hello,

I have a packard bell IXtreme 2711.
I recently installed 4gb ram but only 2.93 is useable. In the bios only 3gb is dectected. But in windows it shows 4gb , and 2.93 useable.

The motherboard is a FoxCon N15235
And the bios version im using is PBSFC2MB.P11

There is nothing in the bios related to memory remapping....

Any ideas?? please!!

All windows 32 bit operating systems only recognize about 3 gb of ram. Some is also used for the onboard video.

Can't help you then. You may need a newer board. But the performance difference between 3 and 4 gb is very low. I wouldn't put any more money into it.

ah right ok ,

Im just trying to find my bottleneck as I assumed I would be able to play for example GTA 4 on lowest settings with my spec.
But the issue I have is the same on any game I play, regardless of the resolution setting and quality settings, the lag I am gettings (every few seconds the game pauses for 1/2 a second and resumes) I think it is sound related. I am letting the sound run via my HD cable from the graphics card, not sure where the bottle neck is....
