    Default P35-DS3R v1 only detects 3GB

    I have this MOBO for 3 years.

    The whole system description is:
    CPU: E6850 3.0 GHz
    Memory G.Skill F2-6400CL4D 2GB (2x1 GB) 4-4-4-12
    MOBO: P35DS3R v1 BIOS F13
    Graphic card ATI Raedon 1950XT PCI-Ex16

    Recently I bought two more sticks of RAM. I bought the same model as I depicted over, but the BIOS only detects 31444.... bytes (3 GB). BIOS features are in default mode and no OC is made.
    FSB 333
    Mult 9x

    Can anyone help me? What is the problem?

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your reply! I have done some more tests and finally I found than second slot don't work at all. What can I do? I have to change the MOBO? I'm sure 2nd slot doesn't work at all...

    Thank you!

    After 3 years it's warrenty expired I assume. A 2x4 GB kit would probably work for you.
    Using only 3 sticks would not give best performance but may work if you don't mind.
    A 32bit OS will not the whole 4GB anyway, but only ~3GB, just FYI.

    You never did say, are you using 32bit OS?

    If you need RMA info let me know and I will find it for you
