The owner of a machine I am looking over told me that it has 1Gb of RAM installed. But when I started the machine the POST indicated 128Mb. This then started me checking the memory sticks - all seemed well there [2x512 Mb] Running Everest Home- indicated the full 1 Gb as the owner and Everest indicated So why is the BIOS reporting only 128 Mb and is the machine running only 128[perhaps a BIOS setting is incorrect]?
When you are next into the BIOS look at the bottom of the Standard CMOS Features Page (generally the first one) and you should see the Base Memory and the Extended Memory. That will show you what you have installed.
