    Intel DQ45EK doesn't take 4GB RAM anymore

    cuco

      Hi

       

      I have an Intel DQ45EK. On this board i have 2x2GB Transcend RAM. This worked some time ago.

      Now i updated the BIOS to the newest version and now i can't install a 64-bit system anymore (tried Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2). They stop installing or run veeery slowly.

      If i use only 2GB RAM, they work fine. I tested my RAM with memtest86+ 4.00 and they seem to be ok. memtest also run veeeeeery slowly if i have 4GB installed, if i check only 2GB at once, it works fine.

       

      My problem seems to be similar to this:

      Is there any possibility to use 4GB RAM?
