    Question Dual Memory channel activation

    Dear forum members

    I am using Gigabyte "GA-M61PM-S2" motherboard(Bios F4) with AMD Athlon 3800+ processor and 2 x 1 gb transend RAMs. My problem is my motherboard display total RAM of 2 gb but the 'Dual Channel' is not activated.

    I am quiet a newbie to harware concepts. Can somebody help me with snapshots on how to activate dual channel on my hardware.

    Thanks in advance

    As per motherboard Manual:
    If two memory modules are to be used to achieve Dual Channel mode, we recommend
    installing them in DDRII_1 and DDRII_2 DIMM sockets.(yellow color)
    Btw,
    latest BIOS for your board is F9c
    GA-Z170X-SOC Force , Kaby Lake...
    GA-Z97X

    Thanks for your reply, I tried all slot combos for the RAMs with no success, do I need to change some settings from bios to activate Dual channel, or just 'loading optimised defaults' itself activates the Dual
    channel
