Used for on-board graphics - 128 MB.

Yes the onboard graphics uses some of the system RAM leaving you with the 896mb you say you have left.

Use the 7102 and confirm the RAM as VOG and Totally-braindead.

Did you receive a recovery disc from PC World?

If not check that there is a recovery partition on your hard drive and that you are able to make recovery discs.

The 7102 that I purchased, amongst many others, did not have the recovery partition on its HDD.
