Baffled: moving memory sticks from one laptop to another halves it

<< < (2/3) > >>

It sounds like one of the RAM sticks (or a memory slot) is defective.

Well, maybe not... Just try buying new laptops until it works. :P (Just kidding! No. I'm not kidding. Support the economy. Just kidding! No, I didn't mean to say "don't support the economy"... oh, nevermind...)

Did you try pulling all the RAM out, then installing each stick individually to see if there's any difference between the two?

If not, try different slots for the  RAM sticks in the 8570. See if that brings you up to expected amount of RAM.

I've seen that work. :( And commonly with USB devices and ports.

@Ath, maybe. What could be done?

Nothing but replace the mainboard, or use other brand/type of memory card.

Will try swapping the sticks, thanks.

Make sure that the BIOS of the 8570p has the latest update.

It does.
