I have an Asus P5LD2 Deluxe Motherboard that I want to upgrade the memory on. It currently only has 1gb of DDR2 (2 x 512meg stick)
I purchased a matched pair of PNY 2gb DDR2 sticks, the machine POSTS & boots fine. In the BIOS it shows up as
System Memory: 5200MB
I'm currently running a 32 bit OS, so I understand that it will only be able to use a maximum of 4gb. I'm prepping to upgrade to Windows 7 Enterprise x64 when I have a chance..
What does the "Appropriated" memory mean? My Google-Fu turned up that I need to enable memory remapping, but I cannot find that option anywhere in the BIOS. I should note I also upgraded to the latest stable bios for the motherboard last night.
