Your system probably has onboard graphics ...

The allocation of system RAM to the graphics processor is a flexible arrangement, between 32MB and 127MB depending on system requirements at any given moment.

I'd suggest that when you checked RAM availability, the system had allocated 52MB for on-screen graphics at that time.

You should be able to set the amount of System RAM set aside for Video int he BIOS so check that you have actually set something like 52 MEG for Video In the BIOS.

You can lower or change this value as required in the BIOS.
