T500 Windows 7 64bit only 2.99GB RAM

I have BIOS Version: 6FET8WW(3.11) Is this the 64bit ROM?

Chipset: GM45/GM47.


I used the ISO Image BIOS Uppgrade. If memory serves there is both 32bit and 64bit ROM in the ISO Image. I am thinking, maybe there was installed a 32bit ROM. Bechause, 2.99GB Ram(usabe) usally is a limit to 32bit OS. I have tried to reinstall the ROM, but the installation program says the same ISO Image is already installed.


PcDoctor Dos says the RAM is Passed.


Again, is it the right BIOS version?

Eventually, how do i flash to the right wersion when the installation utility uppgrade stops and states that uppgrade is not nescessary?

Hello tecnic,


It has to do with the amount of ram installed, not the bios version you use.


Please refer to this extensive thread for further Information about T400/T500 Ram usage.
