Hi,hopefully u can answer my question.I have 2 memory sticks installed in my pc,one 512mb Ram stick and one 256mb Ram, but on a recent visit to pc pitstop it said that i only had 512mb running.
Where can see how much is actually running?Is it possible that the 256 stick is broke?How can i find this out?

Regards
Chris

Is your video built into your motherboard or are you using a separate video card? If it's built into the motherboard, chances are that the video is using 256 mB of your memory for the video (although this is a lot unless the motherboard is a newer model).

The other possibility is that the 256 mB stick isn't working properly - you can check that out by using this free utility to test all of your RAM: http://www.memtest86.com/

My eye problems have lessened and I'm able to post/respond without too much difficulty. (05 Sep 2017)
FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.

If the eye problems come on suddenly, I may not be able to respond.
If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.
