Re: [opensuse] memtest only seeing 48GB out of 64GB?

Run dmidecode and check which dimms are working. Try to find the one
dimm that does not work and swap it with another one to see if the dimm
or the slot is broken.

I have a new machine with 64GB per the bios (and the receipt).

Windows 8.1 and Memtest are only reporting 48GB. Do I need to do
anything, or do I have a defective RAM chip?

Is there a Live Leap DVD I can try?

== details

I have a new custom-built desktop machine with 64GB or ram (in
theory). Its a ASUS X99 mother board.

It came with Windows 8.1 pre-loaded, but Windows is only reporting 48GB.

As a first troubleshooting test I have a openSUSE 13.1 live DVD that
I'm using to boot.

The normal boot/kernel is halting, apparently due to a graphics issue.
(I will try Leap if there's a live dvd?)

The 13.1 failsafe boot works, but top is only showing 4GB. I assume
that is a feature of failsafe.

Memtest starts fine, but it is only reporting 48GB.
