Re: Ultima and 4 GB RAM - miss 1 GB
I also have 4GB of RAM installed, and when I first put my new rig together
this past week, I had the exact same "problem". But it's not a problem in
the end. After scratching my head and testing my RAM modules in every config
imaginable (to check if any was DOA), I realized that the 763MB that were
missing from the readout in Windows (it shows 3325MB on my computer) was due
to the shared video memory. I checked my graphics card properties and...it
said that I had 763MB of shared memory. "Problem" solved.
Hope this eases your mind, because I certainly felt better once I knew my
RAM wasn't at fault.
