|I brought a new CPU yesterday|
Motherboard : GA-880GM-USB3 (gigabyte)
CPU : AMD FX 8120
Memory : 4+4 DDR3 RAM 1333MHz
BIOS VERSION : GA-880GM-USB3 FE
OS installed : I have windows 7 x64 installed on the machine.
But my problem is that when ever i run windows either of them, I can only see 6gb of ram and of which only 3.5 is useable.
BUT when i installed CPUID's CPU-Z I can see that the whole 8gb of Ram is working, i.e., hardware is fine, but how do i get to see the whole ram and utilize it fully.
btw the memory sticks are installed on slot 1,2 as suggested in user manual of motherboard
btw i dont have an extra graphic card.. using the on board one only
Also the msconfig limit ram is unchecked and der is no way for my motherboard bios for memory mapping. pl suggest any other methods to get the memory back.
