Ok, I was doing some work on friends computer, and she has windows vista with only 512mb of ram (damn toshiba)
I had an extra 512mb of notebook ram laying around from an old ram upgrade, that happened to be the right ram for her laptop.
So I installed it for her, but her computer is telling me that she only has 800 something mb of ram. Curious, I take out the 512mb stick that I just put in, and check and it says 424....
So even her original 512mb stick, only shows up as 424mb
I have never seen this happen before.... my laptop used to have 1gb and it showed up as 1024mb, I now have 2gb and it shows up as 1.96gb of ram....
can anyone tell me why this would happen?
just curious because I have never seen it happen before.
