Lost memory

  slangley 10:42 20 Feb 2006

hi, i've a 256mb pc2700 333hz module but the POST and system info tells me that i only have 192mb installed. what's going on? could this be the reason why win xp take its time starting up and logging on? cheers

Do you have a 64mb on board graphics chip sharing the RAM?

That would leave you with 192mb.

As Caprigiani has said it may be sharing with onboard

if you are running xp on 256meg of ram it is going to be slow anyway that is the bare minimum i would suggest at least 512meg for xp

i do have an onboard graphics chip, didn't realise it shared the ram. i'll get more memory and see if that helps too. thanks for the advice.
