Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
I have two 256mb RAM (512mb total) chips in my Presario v2000.
It's says that I have only 384 total when I go into the system info (WinXP Home).
I take out each chip and insert them back in, one at a time.
When I put one in, it's says I have 224mb. The other says 224mb.
So maybe I have a bad slot? I put one in the other slot, it still says 224mb.
Only reason I noticed now is because I bought more RAM (512mb chip).
I inserted the 512mb and one 256mb chip, it's says I have 640mb now.
Anyone know why? Do I really only have 640 or is it really 768? (Maybe it's just not displaying it correctly?)
It's not the RAM or the slots, it seems to be only when BOTH slots are occupied.
Please help. Thanks!
Maybe your video card uses 128mb shared memory so 128 for video plus 640 reading equals 768.
