I recently bought a MSI-MS6741 (K8TM\K8MM) Motherboard and set it all up using an AMD Sempron 3100+ CPU and a 1GB DDR400(PC3200) and an old 250wPSU(has 13A on +12v) and it boots fine,installs windows (XP and Vista)
but i noticed that while i have 1GB Module installed it is only showing 512MB(and it runs like it only has 512mb,very slow on Vista).
I tried to see what was showing in Setup and it only shows speed(Mhz) and CAS Latency but does not show how much memory available? BIOS is AMI 3.31a if you need to know.
Following that i d/loaded Everest 2.0 (from the valuable links this site provides) and it shows the same in there which is querying the SPD i assume for that info so my guess is the board.
The boards manual says it can take 2GB (2x 1GB) and says it supports "unbuffered" DDR400 RAM (and 333/266) so what type of RAM Modules do i need to get this board running 2GB (and showing it in window's).
My guess is either u need to populate both banks with 1GB modules or use 1GB modules @ DDR333?
If you need more info i can post an Everest report with relevant sections(SPD,BIOS,Mobo etc)
Hope someone knows whats goin on here!
