I bought 2x2 GB Transcend DDR2 paired sticks for my PC and detached my old 2 GB stick. My Windows 7 shows 4GB(2GB usable). In Resource Monitor it says 2 GB is hardware reserved. I checked all hardware compatibility and everything is okay. Check both stick solo and they work without a problem. I followed the manual and plugged them in the right spot. Even CPU-Z says that I have 4 GB that are running in dual channel mode.
I haven't found any options in bios that might help me. I tried editing stuff in msconfig like some forums said. The stuff with the maximum memory. I even tried editing the virtual memory page.
My specification is:
Processor AMD Athlon II X4 620
Motherboard M720-US3 Gigabyte
RAM Transcend TQ243PCF8
OS is Windows 7 Professional 32 bit(I know this might be an issue but it should give me at least 3.2 GB)
Any idea where I should start searching for the problem?
