Is it 512Mb or 384Mb?

  Molded 21:20 18 Sep 2004

New PC advertised as having 512Mb Ram shows only 384Mb!

My Computer/Properties - 384Mb.

Belarc Advisor shows 2x256Mb chips installed but again only 384Mb Ram?

Confused.Any suggestions?

Do you by any chance have onboard graphics of 128mb?

It's a laptop.

The display adaptor is shown as an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000/9100 IGP 128 Mb.

Are you saying that this is shared memory?

If so then problem solved.

Yes, that is where your memory has gone to.
