Hey, I own an Acer T180 which comes with 1gb of RAM.
However, when i run Dxdiag it shows "768mb" of RAM? I found this very strange as RAM doesnt even come in these numerals.
Checked inside - both sticks are in fine.
Now recently i bought 2gb of kingston value RAM thinking it was probably just the original RAM being faulty, but when i installed the 2gb (x2 1gb sticks) next to the original RAM, it said i only had 1700 RAM (Figure not accurate, i forgot
). I fiddled around with the position of the RAM for a while and it became apparent that the 2gb and the original 1gb would not work together.
The best result i got was putting the the new 2gb sticks in the original RAM slot which gives me 1792MB RAM. I added the two original sticks and it stayed the same.
I have tried them in a multitude of positions including - 512, 512, 1gb, 1gb -- 1gb, 512, 1gb, 512 -- 1gb, 1gb, 512, 512 (Current positioning).
So does anybody have any idea what the problem could be?
