Board:IntelD945PWM
Chip 3.02Ghz Pent D
Ram:( 2)Mushkin DDR2 5300-2028Mb each
Installed in ports Dimm 1 and 3
Not sure when it happened but was having alot of problems so i got rid of old programs, updated outdated programs ect... then i noticed my RAM settings only indicated 2GB.
Bios only sees (2) 1028Mb

after reading some threads im 99% sure that my MOBO lost the ability to read dual channel on Dimm 1... is this even possible?
when moving ram to dimm 2 and 4 it still only reads 2GB total but i think thats because of the way the MOBO configures its RAM
If this thread is in the wrong location..please let me know.

Are those memory sticks doublesided or single sided? (ie - do they have chips on both sides of their little board)
