    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    Please read the notes carefully before updating BIOS.
    1.Do not update the BIOS if the system is running fine. Unsuccessful BIOS flash may cause the system fails to boot up. The manufacturer is not responsible for any BIOS flash failure.
    2.Make sure your M/B PCB version number first, and then read the updated description & special note carefully to check if the new BIOS version patch pertain to your current problem.
    (How to recognize the M/B PCB version)
    3.Please DO NOT reboot system,unplug power supply and remove battery during BIOS update process.
    4.It is recommended to use the updated flash utility included in each BIOS download package.

    Question
    Does Intel 945G chipset support over 4GB memory under Vista SP1 64bit ? 


    Answer

    Due to Intel 945G chipset limitation, it just can support under 4GB momory addressing. 
    Because PC architectural requirements such as motherboard resources and OS limitations,desktop platforms using 4GB or above memory may be unable to take full advantage of all memory populated on the system. The available memory may report approximately 3.12 GB or less depends on system configurations.

    To take advantage of the system memory 4GB or above installed, the computer must meet the following requirements:
    • An x64 (64-bit) version of Windows system.
    • The chipset must support at least 8GB of address space.
    • The BIOS must support the memory remapping feature.
    • The CPU must support the X64 instruction set. The AMD64 CPU and the Intel EM64T CPU support this instruction set.

    In addition, the 32-bit versions of Windows will reserve a portion of memory for critical system functions such as chipset, BIOS flash, PCI Express, etc. If you have 4GB installed, Windows will indicate less than 4GB is available.
