EMachines Informative - DDR2 memory still in single channel
KENOSHA, WISCONSIN -- I have a T5048A Emachines computer which I got last year about this time. This is the computer with totally different specs that it lists. I have DDR2 memory installed on this computer and its reporting it still in single channel mode. Any ideas why? I bought two identical pairs of 1 gig, 667 mhz of ram. They have identical serial numbers. Its reporting it as having 2048mb of memory so all the memory is in use. I had two 512's mb or ram installed in here at first but they had different speeds and they two were in single channel mode. In bios I am unable to find a switch that lets me switch it to dual channel. Any one have any ideas what is causing it to still be in single channel mode? this computer came with an Intel board with the ATi chipset.
It has a P4 3.0 ghz with HT, and am using Vista Premium. I also added a sweet ATi video card, could that be the reason? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
