Win2K only sees 128MB ram?

old HP LC3 netserver, Win2K SP4, no matter what combination of DIMM's it will only see 128MB. BIOS recognizes all DIMM's, but windows will always limit down to 128? Any limitation settings that I'm not thinking of somewhere in WIN2K?

BIOS: WIN2K:
1:128 128 total
2:128
3:128
4:128

check the boot.ini

It is possible to limit the amount of ram in here.

windows 2000 will support up to 4GB of ram, so i doubt it is an issue with the OS.

your motherboard my have a limit on how much physical memory you can install.

also, sometimes when the OS doesn't report the correct ram is because the ram stick is not properly seated.

Read what he posted. His bios is able to see the ram.

he needs to install a program like cpu-z to verify the amount of installed ram.

it would be interesting to see if the OS is reporting it differently than a 3rd party program like cpu-z.

i'll use mine for example.

Post up the contents of your boot.ini file. Did you install the OS?
