Grr, Amilo 2030 memory upgrade 500MB to 2GB - second time

Postby mikica123 » Wed Sep 02, 2009 12:36 pm

Hello,

Hm, I just cant have my amilo pro v2030 to work with upgrade memory from factory 500MB to 2x1GB memory.

I have tried some new memory kingston 2 x (KTH-ZD8000B/1G) ... no luck, it works, but only with bios and windows reported 500MB. i think this is high density memory.. ok then i went to ebay and bought low density memory and that's:
KVR533D2S4/1G and with two of them.... but again I am with 500MB reported... Grrrr. I have also flashed to newest bios version, no luck.

Any any help appreciated?

So the POST reports the 2GB correctly?
If this is the case please boot from a Linux live CD, start a terminal and post the output of the command: free
