RAM inconsistency

I have one 128 MB stick of RAM installed, yet under Control Panel/System it shows only 96 MB.
Under the BIOS it shows 128 MB.

Anyone know why? Cheers.

Do you have 32MB on board graphics by any chance?

Don't know - but that sounds logical.
So would the stick of memory be 96 MB, or is the 32 MB grabbed off the 128 MB by the motherboard?

The motherboard is taking 32MB off your 128MB stick for the on board graphics.

Thanks for that!
