This may sound daft, but I am having difficulty in checking the amount of RAM in my PC. I have just bought a new PC with Vista Home Premium and it is telling me that I have 3198MB of Physical Memory. However, the computer (Cube247 Pegasus ST9) should have 4GB of RAM. In the Windows Task Manager, Physical Memory(MB)is shown as: Total 3198, Cached 1047, Free 1653
In the Computer Description screen it says 3199MB of RAM
Thanks, Toffly. I have the ATI Radeon x1650 PRO graphics card. But surely the computer is able to report the amount of Physical RAM, ie how much is slotted in to the board. I know that 22 per cent of RAM is in use even when the computer is completely idle.
You haven't been short changed I don't think, Spiny, it's just the crazy way Windows reports the amount of physical RAM (it's a mystery to me). Download install and run Belarc Advisor click here , it will show you what sized modules you have installed.
