    Default Memory Issue: Using GT610 Video Card

    Hi,

    I have a new 939A785GMH motherboard, using a new GT610 video card rather than the on-board graphics. I have PCI set as the primary graphics adaptor in BIOS but I'm still losing 500 MB of my 4GB ram. Is there some way of reclaiming this?

    Thanks.

    Are you using a 32 bit OS? If so, that would be the problem.

    Nope. Not the problem - I'm running W7 Pro x64.

    After some research I've discovered the 'Memory Hole' function in BIOS and enabled it. This has given me the full 4 GB of RAM now reported by Windows. Was this the right thing to do? I.E. will this cause any other issues? Opinions seem to vary wildly on this point.

    Thanks

    I wasn't really familiar with the memory hole function in the BIOS, but it seems it can be safely enabled on x64. So yeah should be fine.
