Lost Ram

  [DELETED] 15:54 30 Sep 2003

Hope someione can help my friend. He runs WindowsXP and has lost 128 MB of ram somewhere or other. He has defragmented etc but still cannot get the ram back. Apparently he has cleared out various things to see if that helps but no luck so far

Defragging applies to the hard drive not the RAM. Likewise clearing things out will not effect the RAM.

As it is a nice round figure like 128MB I would get your friend to check that their installed RAM is seated properly.

in xp have a look in control panel/system/general this will tell you the installed ram.

if your friend has say 256 or 512 ram installed and there is only 128 or 384 showing if may be they have onboard 128mb graphics.this will share system memory and will show here as 128 missing.
