ended up with 2gb from global memory, fitted fine and recognised the memory on a start up screen which said press F1 to accept. which i did.. the comp started up in normal way, then I checked the computer properties which shows only 3.25gb ram? any thoughts why the comp only recognizes this amount rather than the 4.096 that it showed on initial screen? the system is geared to take 4gb on 32 bit. btw. Is it something I could look into/amend? cheers
