248MB RAM???

  Freddog™ 20:23 15 Feb 2006

Hi, again, new PC, I put in 1x 128MB RAM stick & 1x 512MB RAM stick total= 640MB. Now on the initial boot it says about shared memory, I have on-board graphics and I know that takes RAM, but surely not 392MB?? The graphics CANNOT be that great, it's not a brand spanking new mobo, it's supporting an 800MHZ CPU so you can see it's not great. It has a AC'97 Sound card so it's not ALL that old either. Any ideas why it's taking up SO much RAM?

Swap the sticks round. Small in low slot number

Thanks woodchip, you saved my computer's butt again! It's gone up to 312MB and the rest is on the graphics, I'll downgrade them now. Thanks again, I owe you one! (Note to FE I'm am not speaking litural I basicly mean if he EVER happens to have a problem I'll do ALL I can to help) Thanks!
