Laptop Memory - How do I check?

  PTB007 23:12 06 May 2004

I purchased a Sony 415S a couple of months ago, the system has been quite sluggish lately as I have been trying to do some video editing.
As part of my checks for the reason of the slowness in my laptop I looked at the system information and it informs me that I only have 448mb of Ram.
Not that it would make much difference to my editing but I thought my machine came with 512mb of Ram.
Could my Ram be faulty or am I missing a trick?

The rest is dedicated to video memory (shared graphics).

Thanks for your prompt reply. That explains it.

To check your ram, right click on "My Computer" click on >propterties Click on general tab and at the bottom you will see your processor and memory.
