I just reinstaled windows xp and I does'nt seem to be picking up my ram correctly. I have put in an extra 512 mb so I should have 1024, but when I look in system it seems only to be picking up 1000mb of ram. Where is the other 24mb gone?
I had same problem, it's nothing major, it's just what Windows reports, no more then that. My 1024 MB of ram is recognized at 1.00GB of RAM in windows, the BIOS gives the correct read out. Don't worry, it's nothing to worry about.
i currently have 1.7 odd gig of ram plugged into this computer... shows up fine inside XP... shows ok in bios too... XP can take upto 4 gig i beleive... although i never tried it...
if its reading it wrong inside windows.. could be XP reading soemthing wrong... if its incorrect in bios means you got a setting messed up... go into the bios/cmos settings and play with the ram options... should be too complicated...
Sounds like windows handling bits and bytes wrongly. ie 1000megabytes = 1024megabits or something like that. When you say 1024mb ram, it is 1024megabits which is 1000megabytes? Although my ram is showing correctly, oh well, maybe i'm wrong.
I'm sure someone will tell me if I am
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
