Hello everyone I am having an issue with my computer where my mobo doesn't detect all the RAM that I have installed. I have 6 gigs installed and my mobo picks up 3gigs. I tried switching out the modules and same thing happened, about half of the RAM gets picked up.
When I put in 2gigs- I get 1024mb detected and my mobo reports single channel being used.
When I use 4 gigs- I get 2048 detected and it reports single channel detected.
When I use all 6 gigs- I get 3gigs detected and dual channel asymmetric is reported.
I have an ASUS P5B-SE Mobo, using Patriot ddr2 800mhz. I have flashed the BIOS with a new version and still nothing.
