How much Ram do I realy have?

Can any one tell me how to figure out how much Ram I have? According to System properties I have 240MB,Belarc tells me I have 240MB of installed memory, dimm 1 has 256MB & dimm 2 has 256MB (which doesnt make any sense)Snapsys tells me I have 256MB single bank, enabled size 256MB, I know my ram is shared with the graphics card although it is supposed to have 16MB of on board Ram,im totally confused can anyone help??

Im have win xp, In the properties of my computer it does say 240MB but why dont snapsys & Belarc agree??

They are both correct

You do have 256 of ram, one reads that you have 240(256 - 16mb(onboard)

The other reads the complete 256 ram and does not take into account the shared graphics

I did wonder about that 16MB, does it mean my graphics card doesnt realy have its own on board Ram?

no you have onboard graphics which has 16mb of shared ram

you will have to put a graphics card in your pc in order that the ram is not shared

Have you a desktop computer or a laptop/notebook?
