No, i only have two spots to put my ram not four. when i only put my 256 ram stick in i get 112? when i put my 128 i get 120? whats wrong? if both put in i get 240? help!
You should have 4 ram slots. Theres actually 2 seperate "channels", so to speak. Slot 1 & 2 is channel 1, and slots 3 & 4 are channel 2. You need to have 1 stick in slot 1 and the other in slot 3. Therefore 1 stick in each channel. That should take care of your problem. Also, keep in mind mixing and matching ram is not very good for the performance of the comp. as the ram might be incompatible with each other. And the ram will always default to the "slowest" ram, as in if the 256 stick is pc3200 and the 128 stick is 2700, both sticks will run at 2700.

I think p-zero was making the assumption that your system supports dual channel memory. Obviously it does not.
Can you tell me what system you have please? i.e if you have a branded PC (such as a Dell or HP for example), then the manufacturer & model number will do. If however you have a custom built or generic PC, then I need the motherboard make/model. This will be printed on the motherboard itself.
