Teehee unless I can be proven wrong 4x1gb dont work on AMD 64 due to a bug in the memory controller ;p
See random info does come in handy.

Consider yourself proven wrong master ..

4 GB registered in the BIOS and 4GB registered in the OS...

Easy when you know what you are doing

I think what you are thinking about is that 4GB cant be registered in the BIOS normally without remapping...

4GB is the limit for memory and devices.. The BIOS reserves a certain amount for system devices. So if you start the machine with few components it will leave more RAM availible to the OS. Add components and it decreases..

I am using (i think) an Award BIOS V1.7 for MS-7100

To get 4GB in the BIOS either remap the part above 3GB to above 4Gb but you need a 64Bit OS or an OS that can use above the 32Bit range such as Windows 2000 Server with 36bit or 48bit adresssing or Windows XP64/2003 64

EDIT And nope not selling .. I was just whipping it out because thats the point of this thread isnt it

Bout 450-500euro. Ok graphics decent HDD and RAM. No case means It'll only go on parts so thats variable.

Ginger Registered User

Might just rebuild it then as a spare machine ...

They make great servers etc.. Throw a few useful things on it use it as a fileserver or something.
