Re: [memory] RAM Issue???

said by Freddy:

Did Red Alert 3: Uprising run smoothly before installing 8GB of RAM?

Also, it would be useful to know whether you're using a 32 bit or 64 bit operating system.

Yes, the system worked perfectly when I only had 4GB of RAM installed, on Windows 7 64-bit.

It turned out to be an BIOS issue, because ASUS originally made the U43 series to support a max RAM of only 4GB, but then later on decided that the chipset could support up to 8GB, and released a new BIOS to implement that change.

So an update to the BIOS fixed the issue.

Thanks.
