P5NE-SLI and 4gig of Kingston ram = FAIL!

Yes my trusty P5NE has finally shown me its achillies heal, after copping a beating and running my 8800GTS in SLI for the past 6 months with no arguments, I tried to throw another test at it.

4GIG of ram!! AHHHHH!

And lo and behold it can only see 3 gig no matter which configuration I put the memory in. So Im stuck with 3gig.

No I have no updated the BIOS because you need a floppy disk.... Who the hell uses floppy drives these days.

But anyway I have been reading apparently there are some issues with this Mobo see certain brands of ram when all 4 slots are used.

Oh well looks like its time for an upgrade.... MUWHAHAHAHAHA!

Are you using a 32 bit version of Windows?

If so, that's likely where your problem lies.

You need 64 bit OS to see all of and use all of 4GB (or more)

I thought of that, but the system falls over on POST it never even reaches a point to load the OS.

Basically with all 4 stick in I power On.

It comes up with a BootStop? V1.0 screen then tests the CDROM then tests for a floppy then beeps loudly then falls over.
