Re: wrong ram amount
I'm having the same exact problem. I had two gigs (2 x 1gb sticks), one in
the A1 slot and one in the B1 slot of Kingston ddr2 800mhz. The computer
indicated 2 gigs. But, when I added 2 more gigs of the same exact memory,
one in the A2 and one in the B2 slot, the computer only read 3.3gb. What
happened to the .7gb. Why am I not getting the proper reading?
