Esprimo E5710 memory upgrade problem to 4Gb

Postby k1llerpl » Fri Sep 30, 2011 12:53

Hi all
Im newbie here

I bought 2 x 2Gb kingston module for my Esprimo E5710 - KFJ2889/2G

I've updated BIOS to latest one from support page

In BIOS i see 2942M

In Linux 64Bit Centos 5.5 I see 2942Mb as well

Did memtest on separte modules and when two in slots - all ok

When i put onyl one memory it shows around 2Gb, so it is fine.

Help :?:

It's probably the same cause as with all those myriads of 4GB problems reported on this forum and on other pages:

The machine does not seem to support memory remapping. The fact that even the BIOS does not report more than approx. 3GB is a powerful hint here. To be completely sure, you might use a software from here http://www.geoffchappell.com/viewer.htm?doc=studies/windows/km/hal/api/x86bios/fwmemmap.htm, which will indicate whether there exist memory regions above 4GB or not.

If they do NOT exist, then even a 64-bit OS cannot reveal the RAM regions hidden below hardware areas.

Checking with the Fujitsu download site, the latest bios version for this type of box is more than 4 years old, so I think you're out of luck here.

And I think it's highly improbable that Fujitsu will release a newer one. No matter how loud you cry...
