Computer is a Dell XPS Gen 4 Pentium 4 3.2 ghz Windows xp home.
Okay, I originally had two gigs of ram and installed two more of compatible ram. When I installed it only recognized 3 gigs of ram. Even stranger now, its only recognizing 1.5 gigs of ram. I have installed 4 x 1gig sticks of ram.
Someone from the IRC chat has said my video card might be using some of the ram but even my bios says that two of my slots or considered empty. and the other two have 1gb and 0gb (whatever the 0gb means).
Why has my computer recognized 3 gigs of ram when I installed 4 gigs and then now, why is my computer recognizing only 1.5 gigs of ram when i havent changed anything?
