Do I have a RAM problem

  xania 17:53 11 Oct 2010

Belarc Advisor reports correctly that I have 2 !GB DIMMS installed in sequence to support by dual processor. However is is also reporting that I have only 1792 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory. What's going on?

I'm running XP Pro SP3 and the internals are ASUSTeK M3A78-CM motherboard with 3.00 gigahertz AMD Athlon II X2 250 processor

Sounds about right to me - the PC needs and uses some of your RAM, for umpteen bits of processing.

Of course - the on-board video card - forgot about.

I was looking to see what I needed for Windoiws 7 and that's what started this. However, I've now turned up lots of other problems with drivers so I've given myself more excuses to stay with XP!!

Ta for now.
