    i have this mb : MSI MS-7293 ver 1.0 from fujitsu siemens scaleo p ms-7293.
    bios Phoenix - Award
    all go well except tha amount of ram.
    i've installed 2 corsair xms2 ddr2 800mMHz, 2gb each so 4gb total but in the bios only 3gb
    in windows 10 x64 say 4gb, usable 2.94gb : i heve gforce 7500LE so no ram shared with windows.
    so, O.S. see the 4gb installed the bios no.
    i downloaded 1.30 overclock version and i flashed the bios but always the same : only 3gb.
    could you help me to solve this problem ?....or try to change same values on bios ?
    so i ask unlock request for msi ms-7293 ver. 1.0 main board, to view all 4gb i've installed, or some tweak to fully see 4gb in O.S.

    this is my bios info:

    I think I had the same motherboard years ago. It's using the VIA chipset?
    I had the same issue & in the end was told it was a chipset limitation & you could not access the full 4gb...
