Hi - Not all that up on memory but, ... I was looking for memory for my new MB. It said that if I put in 256 that WASN'T Registered/Buffered it would read as 128 rather than 256. I think there are some boards that want the 32*4, 16*8, etc. to be different. Check you MB manual for specifics. Might also check the memory details, some are quite specific on what it will/won't work on. lo

It may not have anything to do with the number of modules on the stick,yet the motherboard may be limited to the amount of memory it can handle or the Bios in the CMOS control panel could be set to only recognize certain amount of memory.Check your motherboard manual to see how much memory that board will support.You can also change the setting in the CMOS Control Panel
