I recently added a 2 GB RAM chip into my PC. I had 2.5 GB installed before. I have 4 slots on the motherboard with max allowable of 8 GB, 2 GB max each slot. So I have 1 GB, 1 GB, 512 MB, and my fourth slot the new one added 2 GB. The BIOS is reporting the correct number which is 4.5 GB. In XP in the system properties its showing 2.87 GB.
I checked the /MAXMEM value in System Configuration and its not checked.
I also ran a crucial system scan and its reporting 4.5 GB. So not sure why XP is showing 2.87 GB.
I am sure that the RAM is the correct for the PC.
Any help would be great, thanks!
