Amilo PI1536 and Alienware bios 1.19 only 3.4 GB ram in BIOS

Postby PedRy » Mon Jan 31, 2011 7:26 pm

Hi.
I flashed my laptop with alienware bios 1.19 to upgrade up to 4 GB ram.

In the BIOS Only shows 3.4 gb the ram. I know that SO of 32 bits only takes 3.2 and 64 much more.

I'm waiting for a Core 2 Duo t5600.

Why the BIOS only reads 3.4gb of ram? Need I Update to 2.07 or it's a chipsets limitation?

Thanks
PedRy

It's a chipset limitation. The 945GM chipset has a TOLUD of 3456MB. I'm not sure if it's exactly the same for your 945PM chipset. Maybe it could be more (up to 3584MB) because there might be no need for an extra graphics DMI allocation. But I don't understand it into the very detail to say that for sure.
