Hmm, thats weird... :s What RAM make and speed of RAM have you got?

By any chance are you making this figure from the kb of RAM available?

if you bought the computer from a company like compaq or hp, they somehow take away a couple MB of RAM from the total amount. No idea how they do it but it does that.

If you add the shared video ram with what is showing for total ram you will come up with the true ram size.
