I have a total of 1.5gbs of memory installed in my Dell Dimension 4700. Qty 1 1gb stick and 2 256mg Sticks. In windows, system only recognizes 256mgs of ram. In the past it recognized all 1.5. In Bios, it correctly shows system has 1.5. Thought maybe memory was bad, tried every combination, just leaving the original 2 256 sticks, taking them out and just installing the 1gb, but no matter what the combination, it still shows 256ram. System does seem slow. Any ideas what is going on or how to fix? Thanks.
