    Hello there,

    Can the Abit BH-6 motherboard really accept 3 sticks of 256meg SDRAM PC 133, 32m x 64 ?

    I have a PC, Pentium 3 800MHz, 100MHz FSB, with the latest BIOS flash from Abit.
    The BIOS is "Award 4.51". When I boot up, it only reads half of the total memory that I have, 786meg. The owners manual says that it will accept up to 768meg.
    If you can help me please.

    Try clearing your CMOS and boot again to see if that fixes the prob. Also you don't happen to be using Kingmax Tiny BGA memory do you? :?:

    Also check to see if there are any issues with SIMM -vs- DIMM modules in any of the particular slots. It has been too many years since I had this board to remember much in the way of specifics.

    The slots are DIMMs and the memory should be ok according to Abit. :?:

    I've removed the motherboard battery and no change. It still only reads half of what I have installed; 3 sticks of "Infineon" 256Mb 32Mx64 SDRAM PC133 . Any help is very much appreciated.

    Have you just tried one stick at a time and checked the results? :?:

    Also see if you can try another brand of memory as it happens occassionally that a certain brand of motherboard won't get along with a certain brand of memory. ;)

    I've tried one stick at the time with every stick and it only reads as 128Mb. I've e-mail "Infineon" for support, I'll post whatever they respond with.

    Does the motherboard manual say something about double-sided or single sided memory sticks?

    My BH6 (rev. 1.0) works fine with 2 sticks of 256mb single-sided memo.
