memory isn't identified correctly

by Johan101 In reply to memory isn't identified c ...

Hi
It would help to know how much ram is being reported and how much you really have.
But here is one posible explanation ...
If you have an onboard video card with shared memory the shared amount gets added to the main amount of memory . Ofcourse you can sometimes select the amount of shared video ram to use in the bios.
please also remember that one or two meg diference is not unusual .

If it aint one of these and the BIOS shows the correct amount you might limit windows to just use a certain amount of RAM .Each edition can do it but I can't remember exactly how.

Anyway , I wouldn't worry too much unless it causes some problems ...

Happy Troubleshooting
