Hello, No Bios is very minimalist I just cannot do anything like that. (time/boot order and enable/disable bluetouth/wifi/fast boot & that's all). Also the bios is last version so there is no upgrades. This seems not really a hardware issue (if I use those ram bar in other machine they are ok (all out of the 4 bars))

And as I said on first post I bought the (official constructor upgrade kit 4*8Gb material used) so it cannot be a compatibility issue ... or whatever concerning the timing the speed the number of rank by IC or whatever you may try to guess about bus-chipset-connectors and ram bars.

The memtest from bootCD says its all OK and passes the 32GB test....That's why I can"t believe of any kind of hardware issues

Thanks Regards

Hello

I'm not sure this can be a bug, but it cannot be an hardware issue (official constructor upgrade kit 4*8Gb material used).

Whatever the setup is on an acerV3-772G that supports up to 32Gb ram (48) just recognize half of it. Also while I user 44096 - 16GB I see only 8Gb instead of 16Gb and below tests reacts exactly the same way :

1-While reading bios state 32Gb = OK 2-While running linux 16Gb are activated. At first I thought it was an hardware issue, but when I run dmidecode I can see my 48192Mo ram bars. 3-While I look at dmesg | grep -i memory I see 5 memory addresses ranges (48192Mo ram bars + 1 video RAM zone).
