Hello, I just made a built for my girlfriend after Asus destroyed my p5b Mobo with a corrupt bios flash file.

This mobo only has 2dimm slots but it supports 4 gb this is also recognized in the bios and in windows as 4bg , But only 2,75 is usable.

This bios does not have a memory remap function , Nor is my msconfig boot configured so it would lock up any ram.

I am searching desperatly for an awnser that could resolve my issue,

I'm looking for an awnser that could help me with this bios. is there perhaps another function wich is not named memory remap that could have the same function?

My specs are

e6600 on foxconn n15235
gt440
2x ddr2 ram 2gb pc2-6400 (kingston &trancend memory)

Anyhelp is welcome

go to msconfig>boot>advanced options>check the maxmemory checkbox , restart and see if it helped

if it didnt work,try swaping the memories around ,if it didn work re-seat the CPU,install a single module once at a time and add the rest modules

As stated in my orignal post, changing the Msconfig boot lockup of memory is not enabled, there is no limit set.

I should have stated that i switched my cpu with an e6400 and e6600 multiple times switched my ram ( wich made my pc not start up)

one would speculate about broken ram or broken slot, but i have checked it thurraly and the ram is OK i tested it on another motherboard, and im sure the second slot is just having a conflict with the switch, because if it were faulty or defect the bios and windows and cpu-z would not recognize it but it does,

i am simply a noob @ Foxconn motherboards, im sort of looking for some feedback about that bios.

But thank you for the quick response !

i cant find the board anywhere but according to a friend of mine the board has onboard VGA and the chipset doesnt support memory mapping so if hes right you are stuck with low memory ,but to make sure check the resources monitor on your windows and see what it reports about the ram , if hes right your only option is getting another board

**** well ill be a monkeys uncle,

this would be incredably tiresome.

i saw some settings in the bios concerning the vga something .hmm

is there no way on earth i could fix this?
i looked for a way to turn it off but it also says there only 128 mb going to the vga.

i cant believe this mobo is a ghost , no search engine or foxconn website will come up with any results..

if anyone else has a magic idea id be glad to try

It is not,


Mine has a IDE ( white )connecter just on the bottom underneath the last PCI slot,


and a Blue one on the right just behind the Main power connector.

Its the motherboard of the flying dutchman ( joke )

ah i see, i tried to find the memory sharing but no succes, i needed to do a jumper reset back cmos checksum after trying the peg instead of vga,

so there isnt exactly a southbridge area in the bios so ill look one more time for the memory sharing before i send u the pics

It has been set from AUTO to PEG, it boots windows , but still 4 Ram (2,75) Usable.
Perhaps something in Windows 7-64 bit can be edited to make it allocate 100% of the modules ,

Bios does nothing , but it shows 4, windows does nothing but it shows 4, it needs to USE 4!.

For everyone owning this mobo, return to sender!

hehehe nice try :p  tnx anyway

oh well ill send this baby to the next dimention then,
any good cheap 775 mobo u know of for a conroe e6600 that can handle about 8 gb ram and has overclocking potentials?
my girlfriend really wants to join me on the BF3 bandwagon and after i totally nuked her (MY) asus p5b mobo with the corrupt bios flash and this wonderfull foxcrack board wont let me get more than 2,6 gb im going to need a new one,

by my experiance and troubleshooting bf3 online is unplayable with less than 6gb ram, unless u want the 1 second freezes ingame everytime u get in action.

2 modules of 4gb are way to expensive + a motherboard , i found a solution . ill buy sandybridge mobo 35 euro's asrock, intel celeron 2,4 ghz and 8 gb kingston and ill be 110 euros lighter , thats all. + the game that is .
