    Hi all,

    Laptop Fujitsu XI1554 is set by the manufacturer in bios limit memory 2GB RAM. This laptop has Phoenix bios. Chipset this laptop Intel 945PM in hardware support 4GB RAM. Also Fujitsu XI1554 bios support NVIDIA and ATI graphics card. Currently I have in this laptop NVIDIA graphics card.

    I found on the internet that laptop Fujitsu XI1554 is exactly the same Alienware m5750 and Alienware m5790. Alienware m5750 and m5790 in bios support 4GB RAM. Unfortunately Alienware m5750 and m5790 in bios support only ATI graphics card.

    I have a request - could someone unlock in Fujitsu bios 4GB RAM support???

    Links to download bios Fujitsu XI1554 and bios Alienware m5750/m5790:

    Have you actually tried 4GB RAM in the system? The limitation may not be in the BIOS at all?

    As Above, the bios may be ok with the 4GB just that the OEM has not listed it. The other issue will be your OS. If it is a 32 bit OS then you may only see 3.0-3.5 GB of ram.

    I think he was looking for further information as in how was this tested and what results were found? specifically did you place in 2x2MB sticks to find the bios reported how much ram was reported by bios and OS. If it did not boot at all did you try resetting the ram? even if it did boot did you try resetting the ram?
    The reason is the OEM rarely moves the bios hole default from where the stock bios indicates it before customization. So it is usually where Intel specifies it, and this would yield your 4GB.
    Even someone who can mod your bios, especially as they would be doing this in the blind, would want to see what your system does with 2x2mb sticks.

    TANWare what do you mean writing 2x2mb???

    On Fujitsu bios with 2x2GB RAM laptop doesn't start (resets all the time) - start only with 1x2GB RAM.

    On Alienware bios with 2x2GB RAM laptop start normally.

    I have 64-bit OS.

    I renew - can anyone help me mods Fujitsu bios???

    In advance thanks very much for help
