Mint 14 64bit 4gb->8gb Dell GX620MT

Postby ewzachmann on Mon Apr 08, 2013 11:21 am

I have Mint-14 installed x86_64 bit edition.
I upgraded the memory in my GX620MT with Intel 950Chipset from 4GB->8GB.
The Bios is updated to latest which is A011...and the bios detects all 8GB.
I did some diagnosis...see below
However, mint only sees 4GB...what is the deal?
