Question

512+ Ram


I've got a motherboard and processor that will allow for higher than 512 RAM to be installed. When I run the system with 512 everything works fine but when I install another stick with an additional 256 RAM, the system recognizes the additional memory and works fine but my 3D modeling and art programs like Bryce, Poser and Photoshop don't run right, they usually crash within the first 2-3 minutes. Should I be doing something in the software or in XP to get them to utilize/recognize the extra memory? Not sure what's going on ................... Froidster

Hi

I have found that PC m/boards using DDR memory can be very sesitive to the memory on board. Ideally all the memory modules should be of the same manufacturer and type(2100, CAS, etc.) but if good quality (well known) manufacturers are used, it is usually OK.

I used a Samsung and Twinmos modules together and had to set a lower memory performance level in BIOS - back to default. You might like to try this.

Press the Delete key while booting up and find the memory performance setting. This is different for different Bios makers. Reset to default.

If it is already on default, you might have to try and get identical memory modules - or at least change the last one that gave you the problem.

Some people have reported that rearranging the memory in different slots can help.

Good luck!

I have 3-256 modules all the same manufacturer, read the message! I'm not having a problem with the system not recognizing the extra RAM, the problem is that some of my art programs like Adobe and Bryce don't seem too happy about the extra memory. Anyone have any better or more useful answers for the particular problem I'm asking about?

Oh, yeah. You're going to get a lot of help with that attitude. If YOU look at your original message, you did not specify that all three sticks were the same manufacturer. The answer you got may not have applied to your problem, but it was a valid answer.

Then ask Adobe and Bryce. Don't ask a question here and then cop an attitude when a response made in good faith doesn't suit you.

Skate carefully. The ice is thin.

Sorry, guess I just expected too much thinking that an "experienced" user reading a message saying, "the system recognizes the extra RAM" could assume that the modules were identical. And to the "ice man", it is definately an XP issue in the virtual RAM settings, figured it out for myself and not too impressed with "experts" commenting about attitude to hide their obvious lack of aptitude. See 'ya, don't worry, I won't be back!
