Hello:

The computer is an E Machines T-6216,Windows XP,512 RAM.

Linking through to "system information",to "general properties",it shows the RAM performance to be 384 RAM.

Is there a BIOS setting I can change to get it to perform to spec or should I leave well enough alone?

If I add two more 256 cards,for my neighbor,will he then get 768 RAM?

((I checked;the cards are installed in slots one and two,of four.))

--------------------------------

Thank you.

You more than likely have onboard video and it's allocated 128 MB of RAM
384 + 128 = 512

Garmanma:

I went in to check and you are correct. This is exactly how the RAM is allocated.
