HELP This is a bit fustrating. I recently upgraded my Vista x64 rig to 4GB ram and indoing so vista see's 3.25GB.
So i read about enabling Memory hole in the bios setting. Did that and all was apples, everything seemed to speed up with vista reporting all 4GB.

Feeling proud of my accomplishment I had my bubble burst when I noticed that I had no network connection infact my homepage would load up and then from that point things would  just die on me with thr OS reporting no Network connection to the PC could be found - or to similar fluff.

Anyhow, if I disable Memory hole everything's goes back to normal.

DFI LP expert mombo S939
4gb Kingston RAM
DSL 520T Router
Vista x64 (no SP1)

Can anyone explain this phenomenon to me please. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

You say Vista x64 - 64 bit you mean ?

If 64 bit, I thought Windows would see the full 4gb without tweaking anything :-/

Thats what I thought. I wrote a whole post on the matter, thinking it was 32bit he was talking about.
Then I saw x64, and hid my suddenly-irrelevant response.

yeah well, I have no problems with vista 64Bit seeing all 4GB that is solved. Mabe most people can automatically see 4Gb on their system but I had to tweak my motherboard for that to happen.

maybe vista SP1 can see all 4GB Ram without me enabling Memory remapping. Since that is what has caused the problem in the first place with my network conection. Not sure that I will do that a until I can free up 12GB!! for SP1 on my partition though.
