|So this is my setup, its just a presario sr2050nx. Has 2 memory slots for RAM (up to 2GB). I bought a 2 pack of 1GB RAM (2 gb total), and put it in the slots but only 1gb is read by the BIOS and system. So far I have: |
- re seated the sticks of RAM (about a dozen times)
- tested the memory slots individually (both work)
- tested the sticks of RAM individually (both work)
(put each one in each slot and booted up the comp, it worked just fine. Just not when i put 1 in each slot, it just reads 1gb instead of 2gb)
- reset the cmos
- ran a windows diagnostic for memory
- used cpu z and it claims to have the 2gb
(even though bios wont recognize them)
and it still wont work!
My guess is that for some reason instead of going into dual channel memory mode it sticks to single channel mode. But that shouldnt be a problem because the 2GB of ram are exactly the same aannndddd there are only 2 slots so i dont have to worry about matching the right slots to go into dual mode. And before you say anything else, yes they are compatible with my motherboard. Ive checked everything over and over and it still doesnt pick up both GBs. What do i do?
Oh and BIOS says that the 'memory bank 2 : not installed' but idk what to do to fix it
