Question re PM8PM-IL MSI-7222 BIOS
« on: 05-April-17, 22:16:32 »

Hi All;D ,

I have a Medion PC with XP Home OS Installed that is fitted with a MSI-7222 (PM8PM-IL) Motherboard and the write up states that the MAX ram it can accommodate is 2Gb of Ram total. The Motherboard is fitted with 2No ram slots & is currently fitted with 1 gig in each slot, so far so good....

I was wondering whether it would be possible to re-program the BIOS to accommodate 2Gb of ram per Slot via a BIOS Modification. I have previously fitted 2No 2Gb sticks of ram & the PC Boots to the XP windows desktop but only states it reads 960Mb of ram. However when I use CPU-Z portable the program is reading 4Gb of ram when the 2 x 2Gb sticks of ram are fitted?

Observation - There is a beta BIOS flash e.g. http://soggi.eu/files/motherboards/bios/msi/PM8PMIL_143_beta.zip but there is nothing to indicate whether this BIOS may permit 4Gb of ram with this upgrade. My current BIOS is 1.2B5. It's a Medion OEM BIOS.

Could someone with the appropriate knowledge advise me as to the best practical resolution to permit the upgrade or is my request merely wishful thinking?

Best Regards & Respect,

David :biggthumbsup:

This forum just covers MSI retail products. For support with OEM products you have to contact the brand that used them so Medion in this case.

Don’t…

(...)

- Ask for help on “OEM products”. MSI OEM products are products produced or partially produced by MSI but sold under a different brand name. Please contact the brand that sold them for support.
