BS,do they have an 800 # or toll free one ?
Your first post was referring to system ram i think.It comes in multiples of 64.Or sticks of 64,128,256, or 512,
but this might be a mismatched 2 or 3 or 4 sticks,or the wrong type for your board.
You never did say where you got this reading though.480-256=224.

Ok but a video upgrade is not the answer.Why did you ask here and accept whoever to suck you into a video "upgrade" card ?
It's a mismatched "pair" of ram sticks i think.but you never really explained this did you ?

Thats a very good point, missmatched pair of Sticks would do it - but numbers are against that idea because neither would work if they're missmatched, you can only have 4 in a motherboard, and the sticks would be in 128MB - which would make 256MB if the other two were missmatched.

Graphics update is not going to change a thing in the RAM; although with 32MB Graphics its probably best anyway.

Did you tell them they didn't put in enough RAM?

I still can't work out how you got 480MB! Even if four work and they don't have to match its hard to make 480.

EDIT: Ah ha! I did it; to get 480MB they must have put in: 256, 128, 64 and a 32. There is no other way to get 480 unless a stick is seriously bad.

Eitherway; tell them about it and make them make it up to 512 - its only 32MB but it shows them, if you buy anymore, not to do it again.
