Question about Computers & Internet
Under ''System Properties'', it says that my computer only has 1GB of memory installed. I have four RAM slots, 2 groups of 2 on the motherboard. My computer came with 512MB of RAM, 2 sticks of 256MB. These 2 256MB sticks came installed on the first slots of both groups on the motherboard, not beside each other. I bought 2 512MB sticks and installed them into the 2 other slots on my motherboard. My computer works great, but I want it to recognize the full 1.5 GB of memory that I have.
My motherboard can recognize up to 2GB of RAM, so I know that should not be the problem. As a troubleshooting tactic of my own, I took all of the memory sticks out and only replaced the 2 512mb sticks right beside each other in the same group. I restarted my computer and it said I only had 512mb of memory. Does this mean a slot or two on my motherboard is not working???
Also, I do not have onboard video memory, it is a seperate AGP card.
If anyone can provide some insight that would be great!
My computer is a Sony Vaio desktop, PCV-RS620G
Are the modules the same specs? you may have some incompatibality between them. the board may be reading the ram right it may be you have four 256 sticks instead of 2 of each. read the motherboard manual it might shed some light here.
