  • Registered Users Posts: 3,140 ✭✭✭ masteroftherealm


    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.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,931 Ginger


    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 :P

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,140 ✭✭✭ masteroftherealm


    Oh and value? Bout 2500or so Id say.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,373 ✭✭✭ Irishpimpdude


    yeah i need pics of this :O and are you actually considering selling this or just wanna know how much its worth?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,931 Ginger


    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 :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,931 Ginger


    Crap.. I just read what Khannie said.. its before you put it up for sale.. whoops thats what I get for reading stuff while doing something else

    Bout 150-200or so.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 29,933 ✭✭✭✭ TerrorFirmer


    64mb integrated SiS......*shudder*

    Anyway, here's my current machine, looking to basically hang onto it for another month or two, then sell it about January or February before getting a new amd system.

    3.4ghz with HT
    1gb Samsung ddr2 533mhz ram
    256mb Sapphire ati x800 PCI-E
    160gb sata 7200rpm HD
    Motherboard is a generic dell one....hence why I can't really upgrade this all that well. It supports ddr2 rm and pci-e though.
    6 x usb ports
    Onboard sound
    Nec 16x dvd-rw
    Not sure of make but another dvd-rom drive.

    How much worth? I plan selling this early nextyear to go down the amd route.....at last :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,140 ✭✭✭ masteroftherealm
