    Ram Question..again!

    Hello

    I finally got my replacement 2gig and popped it in. All working now.

    So i have a 1gig stick and a 2gig stick installed.. BUT.. Its showing as 2686MB on my system settings.

    Is that normal? I thought surely it would show as 3072MB?

    Difference is 386. Either the garaphics card is sharing the memory or you have a faulty stick.
    Fit one, then the other, and see what happens.
    If shared memory, then it might use 128 of every 1024 fitted .
