Memory difference

  bowie 11:08 25 Feb 2007

Hi Folks,
Looking to instal some extra ram into my machine so ordered from Saverstore who have now been taken over by Globally Ltd,so i have not got my memory,looking to order from Crucial instead,ran the scanner from them which tells me i have 512mb already installed,my problem is when i start the computor up it tells me i have 256mb not 512mb,i also get 256mb when i right click my computor,why the difference.The invoice from Saverstore for my motherboard tells me that i have 256mb.

Look under both the memory and the spd tabs to get an accurate account of what you have. Also under the spd tab, use the drop down box to check each memory slot on your computer.

the other way is to take out the memory from the computer, write down the code numbers, re-insert the memory and post the details here. someone will work out the codes for you.
