Odd memory size

  Squirrel1 18:51 03 Feb 2008

A work collegue asked me to have a look at their comuter, because it was running very slow!
After some investigation it was found to have 196Mb of RAM??? After refitting a loose memory module into the motherboard the memory capacity increased to 447Mb??? Very odd.
The only conclusion I can come to, is that the memory modules are not compatible with each other (they are of different pysical size).
I am thinking of junking these modules and putting in two new 256Mb modules or two 512Mb ones as RAM is cheap enough anyway!
