T600 Has 12GB installed and only shows 5GB in DMESG

I have a T600 that was upgraded from a T500 several years ago. At the same time I added memory and upgraded the OS from 10.20 to 11.0 64 bit. I just noticed that DMESG only shows 5GB of memory but I have 12GB installed. Anyone have any clue as to why this is happening? See below:

is001549:/# dmesg | grep -i phys
physical page size = 4096 bytes, logical page size = 4096 bytes Physical: 5242880 Kbytes, lockable: 3935284 Kbytes, available: 4528644 Kbytes

run this command:

# echo 'selclass qualifier memory;info;wait;infolog' | cstm

This will show more detailed memory information.

I note that you have 4GB of regular memory, and an 8GB carrier. how much memory is on the carrier? there may only be 1 GB, as the 8GB carrier doesn't have to be filled.

What are the chances...

I assumed that (8GB) was the ammount on the board as with the other cards. So you're saying that may not be the case?

Basically, the 8GB Memory is a carrier that you can add DIMMs to. It has room for (8) 1GB memory modules.

That's what the problem is: only 1GB on the 8GB board. Should of read the "Type slot number to view configuration" message in the HC output.

Thanks
