I am running a intel p4 1500mhz that came with a paltry 128mb of ram (this system is 3 yrs old, lol)
motherboard is a gigabyte GA8-TXC-423
Bios is AMI about 2 years old
I found i was running a rimms ram an decide to upgrade, i installed 2 more 256mb sticks to boost the performance (as i read up on rimms an discovered you have to run in pairs) all went well and system seems fine and a little faster,
however whenever i run system scans some prog's say i have 649mb of ram an some say i still only have 128mb of ram
Was i suppose to update something so all knew i had 649mb's?
Are these progs not as reliable as believed?
Maybe i am reading result's wrong but they all seem to answer either one way or another, as the system runs fine and fast i dont wanna dig into it too much, (if it aint broke dont fix it, is my view)
just wondered if anybody has some thoughts on this
Any advice and thoughts are appreciated
