Pi2540 - Win7 - RAM upgrade to 4GB, only 3.00GB usable

Postby freeqz » Mon Mar 18, 2013 16:49

Hi there,

I 've just upgraded my memory on Pi2540 to 4GB but Win7 would only use 3.00GB.
I have BIOS version 1.08C.
Would upgrading BIOS resolve the issue?
Or is there something else to do?

Windows will recognize only 3.00 (or 3.25 depending on chipset) GB on such "old" architecture. Run linux or MacOS to use full 4.00GB RAM memory.
