Question about Motherboards
I istalled 256mb ram but if i check in the computer properties it shows only 128mb. my mother board is va6 and a processor of p3.
It also happens in some case that half portion of RAM dosent work. its due to technical faults.
you may have to replace the RAM soon.
and dont rate me inappropriate for this too. if you dont find it helpful leave it with out rating anything..

Even if the new memory is 256mb, the motherboard will not read it as such but a max of only 128mb. Alternately, what you need is to get is another 128mb SRAM rated at 100/133 MHz. Sorry to say but yours is a common problem when newer memory are fitted to a relatively not so recent machine.
Good luck and kind regards.

Its simple, you got 256mb installed right, but when you click properties on my computer you only see 128mb, right ?
thats cause u have 128mb set as shared video memory size in your bios. to reduce this enter your bios by entering setup as soon as you power on your system ..

check bios setup (pres del or f10 at startup) for cpu speed if speed is mentioned less than actual then change to the right value. if cpu speed is ok in bios then speed info might have changed from registry. my computer>hkey_local_machine>hardware>description>system>central processor>hightlight o folder>on the right pane select processor name status> change this to original value.
