I have the following hardware:
- Intel Desktop board D865GBF.
- Intel 865G chipset.
- System RAM: 4 Gb
and the following BIOS version: BF86510A.86A.0077.P25
If I don't install the Nvidia GeForce 6200 video card, the ROM BIOS detects 3288 Mb in RAM
If I install the Nvidia GeForce 6200 video card, the ROM BIOS detects 2472 Mb in RAM.
Also, the video card Nvidia GeForce 6200 has 512 Mb.
Definitly, it is a hardware problem, because when the Nvidia card is installed and I use my OS Windows Xp SP 3, I don't have problems: XP detects 2475 Mb in RAM.
In the same way, when the Nvidia video card is not installed and I use my OS Windows Xp SP 3, I don't have problems: XP detects 3288 Mb in RAM.
I dont't have problems with the OS Windows XP.
I bought this video card because I wanted to install Fedora 17 and this OS asked me a video card with more memory.
I am in this forum because it's a problem related with the desktop board, memory RAM and the Nvidia GeForce 6200 video card.
Do I resign wih this problem?
Is it logical and normal?
What can I do?
Is there a solution or I must live with this problem?
Thanks in advanced for your help.
