X120e : SIW reports that BIOS gives Wrong Values re: Memory. Is this new?

2011-11-28, 21:47 PM

hello

I had just updated to the latest bios so don't know if something is amiss there.  my x120e has one mem module, a 4gb Crucial part, runs fine, no bsods no errors that are apparent to the user.

 

anyone know what causes this or if it is spurious?  the main reason I would like to know is that I was about to buy a matching 4gb module, but if perchance the part in here is not just-right for this system, then I shall buy 2 in a matched pair and sell this one.

 

thanks for your help

Is it giving you something like 3840 or 3724 MB? If so, that's because it's reserving the remainder (256/372) for the GPU. You shouldn't have any issues just grabbing another stick.
