Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
My new 1gb RAM is not being fully read. I have run dxdiag and the approx memory in display is 32mb, so I don't think it's the display that's eating it up. I went into BIOS and there's no option for shared memory that I could see. I really need to get this RAM issue settled so I can run my software for my job.
I'm fairly computer savvy, but I'm at my wit's end. Another helpful person on here got me up to the dxdiag and bios, but the problem is still not solved. Anyone?
Although you have 1 Gb of RAM installed, I'm guessing you have two 512 Mb of RAM installed, it appears that only one RAM module is working.
Go into the BIOS and check if the BIOS sees 1Gb of RAM.
If it sees only 512Mb then swap the RAM modules around in the memory slots and check the BIOS again. If this doesn't work just install a single memory module at a time to determine which is the faulty memory module.
