Hi.

Recently I have come across something wierd. When I right click "My Computer" or open "System" in control panel, I get listed "Computer: 1.50GB Ram". And that's it, no processor listed, before it used to. This isn't a big issue at all, I just want to know why its like it. If it could be fixed obviously I would.

Screenshot below for anybody interested:

system info is notorios for misdisplaying info...especially in the properties menu of "my computer" is the proc displaying correctly in system info...or any other 3rd party inventory software?....
i haven't had this exact problem...but i had a machine here at work with misdisplayed ram...wouldn't show up in certain places within windows....like it would show up correctly in task manager..but not in system info...i flashed the bios (to an older version on the msi board in question) and the ram then displayed correctly...

It has never happened before, yes, the processor does show up correctly in other programs, with the "Athlon XP 3200+" and the "2199Mhz".
