    Ok I just figured out something interesting.

    there are six dimm slots

    6 5 4 3 2 1


    Ok 1 and 2 are showing up as usuable ram

    3-6 are showing up as hardware researved ram. So they are registering as being there but not being used in windows.

    The post still only shows 4g.


    In windows under system it shows (12gb) 4g stable.

    So I think all the slots are running just for some reason 3-6 are not running correctly. does this info help you out any.

    Also and I may be wrong about this under task manager the 3-6 ram is showing up under virtual memory. The commit shows 8gb. It exactly shows xxxx(used)/8000mb(something like this available.) the 8000 is the same amout missing from my usuable ram.

    {CPU} 6 5 4 3 2 1
    (HERE) (Dimm slots here) (diagram of motherboard cpu and ram spots to my knowledge)

    1,3,5 = whilte slots
    2,4,6 = blue slots

    Different combinations
    A. Used 1 said 2gb
    b. Used 1,3 said 2gb
    c. Used 1,3,5 said 2gb
    d. used 1,2 said 4gb
    e. used 123456 said 4gb

    do to these different combinations I came up with the fact that only 1 and 2 are working correctly the other 4 closest to the cpu arnt.

    Now I am saying 1 and 2 are furthest to the right because thats how i believe they are numbered on the board not 100 percent sure of that though.


    So lol does this info help out at all

    Reply to your post

    First i dont think the COMMIT (mb) 8k is the unused ram that was a mistake on my part.
    COMMIT = Page File

    as for physical ram my states 4gb or 4000 (not sure what the 000 are exactly just that they are in the 4,000 range)
    Under neath physcial ram it has
    1. free
    2. cached
    3 Used.

    Is this information helpful at all lol

    Ok i dl and installed those intel chipset drivers.
    when I went to install it, it loaded all drivers fine in the installation tools.
    then it states hit next to install. when i hit next it immediately goes to finish. it doesnt show anything being actually installed. I even looked through device manager and the drivers where from 2006. is there a way to check that the newest oen is installed.

    Different versions I tried to install to see if any changes would accour
    1. windows 7
    2. windows 7 64 bit
    3. 1 old vista 64 bit from 10/2009 the last one (this one showed something being installed)
    4. The one from gigabytes website.

    I tried all of these and still no fix for my motherboard and ram. Lol I need some strong meds this is giveing me a horrible migrane. the sad thing is it worked fine for a year and then bam no longer works properly.

    So anymore ideas lol. I do appreicate all the help and all the different ideas to fix this problem.

    the chipset drivers install almost with a blink of an eye you wont notice them install but they do,have you tried new ram yet? and did you test each module one at a time in each white slot? it should boot up with one module in any white slot,also can you boot and see full 6gb of ram if you just install 6gb?

    Default Re: Easy tune 6 F up my ram.

    ok I will do that next. also I wanna restate or ask why if i just updated the chipset drivers are they still saying 2006 for the year


    EDIT cpuz states 12288 or 12gb of ram installed so know only the bios is showing the incorrect amount and windows cant access the full amount cpuz sees aell of it

    2nd edit: im going to run some benchmarks on my memory see ifthat comes up with any errors or anything. I have a fan blowing down right on them so I dont have to worry about heat.
