My last post, I was enquiring bout memory upgrades. In the end I bought 2 128MB 144 pin SDRAM sticks, and installed them in my pc.
I have noticed a significant improvement, however, upon bootup, NVRAM says I have 512MB installed, Device Manager and DXDiag both report 512MB too. My graphics card setup prog also reports 512MB.
My math aint great, but the two 128MB sticks, should add upp to 256MB shouldnt they? I bought the memory from PCWorld, and the geezer on the till said "hang on, that price cant be right", but ended up charging me around £39, which was what 2 128MB's would have cost.
Have I ended up with a great deal here?
(If it is a great deal and mistake by PCWorld, I bought the sticks from the Boston, Lincs store lol go get some!!!)
No, before I bought the new memory, I had two sticks of 32MB, giving grand total of 64MB's.
The boxes I brought home from shopping both stated 128MB on the lid.
I would love to take back the memory sticks to PCW. However, after having purchased a soundcard and graphics card from them, and when buying the memory, I was told that they were very sorry, but once these products were installed I couldnt take them back and exchange/swap/refund money on them. I had asked if I could, in anticipation of having bought something/s that may have been incompatible.
Your computer is probably suffering from some form of numeric dyslexia and feels so good with 128MB after struggling with only 64MB that it incorrectly assumes that it must now have 512MB. For God's sake, don't tell it the truth!
