    Exclamation Memory problem need help.

    I currently bought a ep35c-ds3r board to move on from amd and with that i purchased a E4600 intel dual-core cpu,

    My memory is kingston DDR2 PC-8500 HiperX 2x2 GB pack which i purchased 8gb of as my board said it ssurports 8gb ddr2 ram,


    Now atm in the device manager under pci-bus area i have a erro stating memory conflict with a address.

    Now atm my ram is supose to work under 2.0V @1066MHZ with 6-6-6-18 settings whihc i have selected with my overclock @

    FSB - 266
    CPU host clock- x12
    Vcore - 1.425
    Memory freq (was auto but i noticed in the bios side panel the 4.0~ (1066 strapping so i used that, set the memory to 6-6-6-18 and the other to auto,

    Memory read all 8gb and in vista x32 home basic it reads as 8.0gb in dual channel but the pci error was still there i cant find in the bios a memory remap area as i think my newly installed 8800 GTS 320mb is conflciting, the two file that related to the error that i located in the "run vertifier" was the pciide .sys and pciidex.sys

    In "run msinfo32" i checked the conflicting and sharing sector and can see the conflict as its name is labaled but no irq number i can see only i/o and memory address is available,

    My board surpports ddr3 and ddr 4x1.8V memory but i up'ed the voltage to 2.0V do i need to do any other voltage changes located in the hidden bios (ctrl + f1)

    Or is there a memory remap area? as i cant locate it> the manual clearly stats my board handle ddr2 1066 and the manual says 8gb ddr2 max, but my problem is this on gigabyte website in the EP35C-DS3R motherboard section, in the memory comparision area / in the 1066 sector it shows only 512mb and 1gb sticks when i have got 2 gb sticks of 4 kingston hiperx ram i remove 3 sticks and tried yet still the problem excists i also reformated and installed nothing removed all hardware right down to basics only and unfortunly havnt sorted my problem, which oviously keeps bsoding me everynow and then.

    Now my question is why clealry mark on the motherboard box 8gb 1066 ddr2 surported when in the website memory comp, it shows no surporting 2 gb sticks, im at a loss and this board is only 1 month old as i got it for xmas to be sure i am available to ddr3 if more games before more resourcefull.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Why are you using 8GB of memory on a 32bit operating system?

    Windows 32bit OS's are limited to around 3.2 to 3.5GB of ram available, regardless of how much you install above that.
    It's a well known 32bit limitation.
    On top of that you have the address ranges required for graphics cards etc and this is no doubt why you are getting errors.

    I do believe though from Vista SP1, the physical memory size installed would be shown - but NOT used.

    Basically you need a 64bit OS, however remember VISTA has limitations too, per product and 8GB is the max for the 64bit Version of Vista Home Basic.

    I do not have any answer to your problem but I do have a question. ...What is the point of trying to run 8GB of ram if you are using a 32bit operating system?

    LOL ... VorLonUK must not have got interrupted while posting as I did ...

    if you read the above you will no atm im currently using 1x 2gb kingston stick of hiper x ddr 8500 1066 mhz memory.

    I was using 8gb at the start like 1 week ago and removed to try to solve the problem yet it still ocures so i can put the rest bk in as it dont seem to matter, and im using 8gb of ram as i moved from a older board and whne i bought it in the shop was uncertain of how much it surports and got the pc-world customerservice team in the shop to help me they told me the manaul stats, and of course directed me to the kingston 2x2 $gb pack of that memory i said above so ofc since it can handle 8 and my lasy was 4 of ddr 400Mhz i thought Great this will make my pc fly, and also i was convinced to buy it as i read a very good tomshardware reveiw that vista works perfectly on 8gb ram, needing hardly anypagefile, yet i left my pagefile on incase errors arrive yet im getting this one from day1 -.-.

    Vista Workshop – Performance Boost with 8GB of RAM : Windows Vista with 8 GB

    So i was a convinced customer purchasing vista , 8gb and a new mobo to surport yet im having problems here atm.

    Just think it's funny sometimes when people are on the brink of blaming the board....

    Edit:-

    Please see my edited Post 2

    Edit 2:-

    From your tomshardware link:-

    Quote:-
    The benefit of having 8 GB of system memory is that the OS has to access the hard drive far less frequently, making Vista feel much snappier. However, several settings in the BIOS and the operating system need to be changed in order for the system to be able to take advantage of that much RAM. Vista 64 still faces a few challenges, not the least of which is often a lack of drivers. At least most standard applications run without issues. On the other hand, none of the current generation of applications can come even remotely close to utilizing the maximum amount of memory installable.

    I'm sorry, but I've re-read your first post and all it mentions is about 8GB of ram and a 32bit OS.

    So people can see what hardware you have installed now and what bios revision, can you simply list them.
    Could you also describe the problem you now have - ie is the conflict in the memory address range the only problem?

    1) Motherboard model & revision
    2) Bios Version
    3) Cpu model
    4) Ram installed, make and model and link to manufacturers product page
    5) Video card
    6) Sound card (if any)
    7) Any other PCI/e cards
    8) Power Supply make, model and capacity
    9) What OS are you now using

    a) Have you loaded up the bios optimised defaults with the new ram installed, SAVE & let system reboot?

    b) Have you attempted a bios update and if you have was this via @Bios or Qflash?

    c) Have you attempted to Clear the Cmos?

    d) Have you run memtest?

    e) Can you still enter the bios?

    Right atm in device manager there shows no (?) or (!) signs which oviously lead me on a wild goose chase to find the conflicting device until i eventually browsed each driver installed on the device manager sector.

    Device name is as follows -

    PCI bus

    In its proberties i found located @

    PCI bus proberties/resources

    Resource settings:

    Resoucre type Setting
    I/O Range 0000 - 0c47
    I/O Range 0D00 - FFFF
    Memory Range 000A0000 - 000BFFFF
    Memory Range 000C0000 - 000DFFFF
    Memory Range DFF00000 - FEBFFFFF

    Setting Based on: [Current configuration] (marked out wont let you select anything)

    Use automatic Settings [Change setting..] (marked out wont let you select anything)

    Conflicting device list:
    Memory Range DFF00000 - FEBFFFFF not available.

    Overclocking settings @

    FSB: 250 (cant atm get it to 266 @ 3.20ghz stable as im still in the process but paused it as Fixing this problem ive had from day 1)

    Memory Freq : 4.0+ (800 strapping) - @ 1000mhZ atm but memory is rated to 1066 as its kingston HiperX *i have 8gb of it but took out two stick as 32 bit dont use it all.
    Memory SPD @ 6-6-6-18
    PCI-E locked @ 100mhZ
    Vcore voltage @ 1.325V
    Memory voltage @ 2.0V
    pcie (normal)
    fsb (normal)
    mch (normal)
    PCI locked to 33Mhz

    My board btw lads = GA-EP35C - DS3R

    It handles ddr3 also but i installed 8gb at the start of kingston ddr2 8500 ram rated @ 1066 so i could overclock my cpu from the standard settings ,

    800fsb - 1066fsb
    clock host @ 12x
    memory from 800 to 1066 @ 4.0~
    Vcore voltage @ 1.425


    Cooling:-
    2 front blower 120mm fans @ 2500 rpm
    2 Exshust Fans 120mm @ 2500rpm
    1 side case 90mm Fan @ 2000rpm
    8800 GTS 320mb Blower FAN @ 100% @ 2700rpm
    Artic cooling : Extreme Freezer 7 @ 160 WATT- 2000+rpm

    When i overclock to 3.0GHZ @ 250fsb and dont change voltage at all as a reveiw guide showed i get a stable overclock but cant seem to go further like other said it was opne of the easyiest to overclock to 266 all i had to do was raise the fsb to 266 with a 1.425 voltage but dont seem to go well for me as i bsod .
    But @ 3Ghz system idles @ 15c to 20c and max loads @ 50c .

    So i pused the overclocking process till i fix this error was ive had since day one that bsods me like mad.

    Sorry, you are just confusing things.

    I can't see at a glance what hardware you have!

    Also you seem to have not setup the optimised defaults as suggested and are talking about overclocking.

    Also your Vcore is too high.

    Unless you start at a base configuration - which facilitates basic fault finding, you'll be going around in circles and not solving the problem.

    Hopefully you'll read my messages and make things easy to read.

    Looks like all you've managed to achieve from your oveclocking is one totally unstable PC - full of memory errors.
