3. Remove memory banks and check whether slots are damaged.
4. Insert the memory banks again and ensure that all memory banks are properly inserted. If certain memory is still not found after power-on, you need to change the memory banks.

Root Cause

• Faulty memory banks or damaged memory slots exist.
• Certain memory banks are installed in incorrect slots.
• If the current system is a 32-bit operating system, you can find up to 4 GB memory.
