Am I losing my memory

  YAN003 07:53 29 May 2004

I Have 2 sticks of PC3200 DDR = 1024 but only shows as 1022 when I run Dxdiag.......

Each one on its own shows then at 510....

To confuse me even more I have run two benchmarks and 3dmark2001 has recorded as having 1024 of memory and 3dmark03 shows to have 1022......

To confuse mre even more a benchmark using another download showed 1023......

Anyone any idea what is going wrong?...

I thought my graphic card might have something to do with it but the benchmarks have thrown me as the tests were done straight after each other.

Right click My Computer, click Properties. Your total amount of RAM will be displayed under Computer (bottom right hand corner)

Forgot to add that to my post.

That shows 1.00 GB of ram.

Thanks Curio.

I think its much more likely to be bugs with the benchmark programs, personally I take anything that a benchmark program gives with a pinch of salt. If the Bios says 1022 I would worry, if the benchmark program says that I wouldn't. You don't mention your computer crashing so you're memory is ok.

Bios shows 1024
Right clicking My Computer shows 1.00 gb
Dxdiag shows 1022 as does my benchmarks....

I have since checked on Futuremark comparing systems and many more on there show memory as 1024 1022 and even 1021.

So I think all is ok.

As ever many thanks for taking the time for the advice.
