RAM dropped from 32GB to 16GB.


Recommended Posts

 

Peace,

I have Of 32GB. On the motherboard they sit about two 16GB each.

2 x 16 - Corsair 4 32 G 3200

I have always seen 32GB, including in Premier and After Effects. 

But today I noticed that I only see 16GB for some reason. I have no idea how I lost 16GB of . Seriously everything is connected according to what I see.

How do I check the issue, and what is the way to resolve it? Could it be that one of the memories went to me? 

 

Thanks

There is a situation that has gone.

But, it's more likely that one stick just does not sit well in its slot.

Therefore, turn off the computer, including the power cord outside the outlet,

Take out each of the sticks from its holder, transfer them 

On the contacts a damp wipe for babies, wait for everything to dry and return.

Turn on and see what the situation is.

If it does not work out, switch between the positions between the two tics.

I tried what you said to do, but I'm still at only 16GB.

I tried to start the computer with one stick at a time, but the first one puts me in power saving mode. 

The second just makes all my fans work faster and louder.

I have 4 slots, can I try to put the memory in the 2 empty slots. The problem is that the CPU fan slightly covers one of the blanks.

 

Is it worth it or safe to try this option at 03:02, or something at Maybe?

B- Record total memory 16384 mb. Do not see anything about 32GB there, but maybe I do not know where to check.

 

Thanks

So this is a hardware issue.

Substitute slots, if you do not see in the BIOS all 32,

Apparently one stick was knocked out.

Not connected.

 

Apparently one went bad. Check the one you think is faulty, move it to a working slot and give it a try

What to upgrade? Exercise responsibility!

I'll definitely check it out, but I thought I would upgrade the For something better, maybe even 64GB. Just checking options.

In another forum I was offered to do a resume for CMOS, is it worth a try? I was told that it is very strange that it shows me that 2 slots are in use, but only 16GB, and Eli Epic CMOS will help.

In my experience with an old computer It would happen occasionally and I would have to take out and put in the memories, in Bios he would identify but in Windows he would say X USABLE. I do not know why this would have happened. But from time to time there were indeed bad memories ...

I would first try to figure out if one of them is faulty or the problem is not in them. In fact leave only one stick at a time inside the computer and see if the computer goes up. Try one another each time in the same slot. Plus is it a matching pair or different sticks?

The computer does not boot with one separately, only when the two are connected the computer mounts.

Separately - one puts the computer into power saving mode. The second does not cost at all and only causes the fans to operate and that's it.

And it's a compatible pair of Vengeance LPX.

If resetting the BIOS did not help, then it is worth checking in the BIOS itself an option to manage the memory controller. From a common situation that is supposed to speed up access times to other things. I have not really encountered this recently and I have no extensive knowledge of it, I say in advance - but maybe there is an option of memory channel mode and should be set as independent. I will look according to your motherboard if there is such an option there and where it is. Which is weird because it's turned on by itself if it's related at all and why it does not reset when you reset the BIOS. Again this is just a hypothesis. In addition Windows started updating BIOS through windows update in some cases and this creates issues, maybe related to why it happened suddenly.

EDIT: I see that 16 GB is reserved for your Hardware reserved system. I will look for what this means and what the solutions are. But worth looking for as well. He recognizes the second slot.
