Dear! It show perfect because 1Gb = 1024 MB so if you calculate it you will find it equal to 298 GB because it is binary system shows while vendors account 1GB = 1000 MB but we format it according to binary machine language so that's equal to 298GB. I hope you have make sense.
Thank You

I installed 4 Gig of RAM memory but only 3.25 shows up.\r\nis there a test I can run to see if the memory cards are working correctly? Thanks. Paul


It sounds like you are running a 32 bit operating system XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (32).
The 32 bit Operating Systems are only able to see and use about 3Gb of RAM. To use a greater amount you will need a 64 bit OS (either Windows XP/64 or Windows 7/64) or one of the open source 64 bit operating systems.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WD Passport Elite 320 - won't install autobackup launcher


The problems is this: at this point, Western Digital is not supporting Vista 64-bit with any of their related software. Granted, some things will still work while using the 32-bit version, but some won't, and the backup software is a prime example of the latter.

You might try downloading the latest version of the software from here:

http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=204&lang=en

Chances are, it will still barf, but it can't hurt to try it out. An alternative is to use another backup application; the one included with Vista ought to work. I wish I had better news, and believe me, as a user of both XP 64 and Vista 64, I feel your pain.

Cheers

Nick

Cust is not able to download any program on vista operating system it gives an error message as not supported on windows 64 bit


there is very little software, and virtually no freeware, that supports vista 64 bit. return the computer if u can and exchange it for one with vista 32 bit, these machines usually have 3 gigs or less of ram, where as the vista 64 bit systems will typically have 4 or more gigs of ram.
