Just wondering what the maximum ram the CPU 'Intel® Pentium® Processor E5500 (2M Cache, 2.80 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)', is able to support. I currently have 4GB installed and it works fine, but when i replace them with 8GB (2x4gb), the system won't start even though the motherboard can support 8GB.
Thanks in advance
Hello Lee, I would like to inform you that this specific processor does not come with the memory controller hub embedded.
Therefore, the motherboard you are using is in charge of the RAM. I would recommend you to check with the board manufacture if you may need a BIOS update or any other troubleshooting steps.
