    Jetway board not recognizing full 1GB RAM

    Uggh. Any ideas? I have a Jetway J7F2WE2G board, which is an EPIA/VIA C7 2ghz board. Has one memory slot for DDR2 memory up to 1gb. Got a Kingston 1gb non-buffered, non ECC stick which is what the board is supposed to take, but the board is only recognizing 512mb. Thought it was a bad stick, Newegg shipped another out and still having the same problem. Any ideas?

    I'm willing to bet the onboard graphics is stealing it. Check out the BIOS to see if there is a setting for how much memory the onboard graphics card is taking.

    There is, but only 64mb. Windows shows the subtracted amount, but the memory check at bios should should the full 1gb.

    You have any other sticks from different computers you can try?

    Also muck around in the BIOS a bit, there might be a setting to limit it.

    If the MB does not support high density RAM it could show this result in BIOS

    And I know for a fact that it does not.

    I created a whole thread about how much these Jetway boards suck because of RAM problems.

    I tried various RAMs on their limited list of supported RAM modules, none would work. I tried high density, low density, everything and nada.

    But I know that I got absolutely nothing with high density RAM, and it says specifically in the manual to not use high density (at least on the J9F2).

    Thanks. The manual doesn't say anything about high density chips, but I think you are probably correct. I've ordered a low density stick and hopefully it recognizes it, otherwise maybe I'll start looking at Jetway alternatives.

    If that Jetway is RMAable, I would. MSI Fuzzy boards are top notch
