I have an asus A7V133 MB. In the manual it states that it can handle 1.5 gb of ram. When I install 3 512mg ram chips I receive an error message"Insufficient memory to utilize windows" however when I boot up the computer recognizes the 1.5gb of ram. What is my problem? Thanks

Are you using win9x. They have problem with system with more than 512MB.

If you are using Win9x/Me please read: <A HREF="" target="_new"> Q253912</A> this is a known problem for these OS's. It is not your M/B.

Recommendation, upgrade to Win2k/XP. These can handle your large amounts of DRAM sufficiently.

yes i would upgrade, if you got 1.5gb of ram in that box, i wouldn't know why you would be running win9x/ME.

I had the EXACT same problem. Darn. I wish I could remember how MS techies fixed it. There is a line somewhere in the Win.ini or sys.ini file that limits the memory.
I had to edit it and the problem was solved.
Might wanna call MS about it or check their data base.
