I was just in the middle of reading dmidecode when you sent this. And it 
occurred to me, this stupid motherboard should not even allow "unganged" mode 
when the present IGP is in use. Duh!

Anyway, I have the BIOs set to use 64MB but I found a section in dmidecode 
which says:

Handle 0x0012, DMI type 20, 35 bytes
Memory Device Mapped Address
	Starting Address: 0x00180000000
	Ending Address: 0x001FFFFFFF
	Range Size: 2 GB
	Physical Device Handle: 0x000B


That 0x000B is one of the memory chips; DIMM1 BANK1.

So that DIMM is not being used. But the BIOS recognizes it!!! So what gives?
