The computer recognizes all 8GBs of RAM. When using some memory hogging applications, the computer would barely pass 4GBs of usage.
Things I've tried:
- I reseated the sticks with not much luck.
- There is no "maximum memory" flag set in msconfig.
- There is no "memory remapping" option in the BIOS.
- I've updated the BIOS to the latest version.
I have 4 x 2GB sticks (DDR2 PC2-5300 ECC) in this Dell Precision T5400 workstation. The 2 recently added sticks are x4 organization and the original are x8. I'm not sure if that would make a difference.
