View Full Version : ram not fully recognised

I recently got another 64meg pc133 ram stick to go with my existing 64meg pc100, it showed up fine as 128megs under win98 but recently I formated the pc and put win95 on now it only seems to recognise 96megs, any ideas why it wont recognise the whole 128?

Have you checked in BIOS, or in the POST to see that the whole 128 megs is being detected? If it isn't there may be something wrong with your new RAM stick. Test it in another machine, and if the problem remains, take it back.

thanks for the suggestions, yea in the bootup post its displaying 96 as well, its interesting tho that only a few days before it showed up the whole 128 megs under win98. I did take the new stick out and re-seat it and also reset the bios settings after formating the machine and I'm sure I didn't damage the ram. I thought it might be a issue with the new pc133 not being completely compatible with the existing pc100 stick but they were working ok at first.
