Realtek audio devices vanish with 4Gb memory installed

The Realtek ATI HDMI Audio device in my machine works perfectly when the machine has got 2Gb of memory installed in it, but when I put another 2Gb in and reboot the audio devices vanish from the Device Manager and I get a red X in the little speaker icon on the taskbar.

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit

Has anyone seent his behaviour?

Nope - the only solution was to reduce the amount of memory in the system unfortunately.

I tried with 3GB and works perfectly, only problem was when I put 4 Gb. It's a shame there is a not a solution about it.
