Now the issue that i am facing is that my 64bit fedora system does not showing and supporting more than 3.2 gigs of RAM when i consult "/proc/meminfo", "free -m" and "top". Also I am getting the following system prompt, ===== Kernel failure message 1: WARNING: BIOS bug: CPU MTRRs don't cover all of memory, losing 4800MB of RAM.This explains why you don't see all of RAM. Did you try a BIOS update? You could also ask your hardware vendor for an explanation of why it's not working.
Ditto on this. I had a brand new motherboard and it wouldn't recognize 8GB. A BIOS update and all was well.
