After a reboot, check the box that pops up 'Do not show this blahblahblah' and Ok. You should see all of your ram in specs now.

I did this, and nothing happened.

You should uncheck those options....Those are only for disabling hardware for testing and debugging.

That was why I posted not to do it also.

Let me see if I can find something in the tutorials on Windows showing wrong amount of RAM.

I agree with logicearth.


This is how we showed everybody in the past.

Found nothing in the tutorials.

I'm not sure why Windows isn't showing it.

By any chance have you run the WEI on your PC yet?

Control panel> Performance Information and tools

Click the run WEI if you haven't.

If you have run it before on the right side of page toward bottom click rerun assessment.
That might get Windows to recognize the RAM properly again.
Worth a shot.

Yes, it originally was unchecked, i checked the box and tried it then unchecked the box and tried it

As above, as default, they were unchecked.

Yes, i have ran the WEI. I scored 5.1 :S, because of low ram. I used to score around the 9 mark iirc.

I'll have a google search why ram isn't showing in window's 7.

Thanks

Have you looked in your BIOS for re-mapping options? Also, a WEI of 9 is impossible! The max is 7.9

I had this same problem when building my pc. (see my specs). I tried replacing my motherboard then replacing the memory for different brand. After setting the correct memory setting for the new memory brand; I had 6 gigs showing. I would try new memory and set the correct setting in bios.

I am not buying new memory. There is nothing wrong with it if CPUz says i have 6GB installed. Its obviously a software (MSW7) fault. The memory alone was around $80 each stick of 2GB iirc.
