Re: HP a1600n (Media Center) with Win 10 Creator

I have 4GB RAM installed but PC is detecting only 3GB. I installed additional RAM many years ago and PC recognized 4GB. I do not regularly check this so I have no idea when PC started seeing 3 vs 4GB installed RAM.

Does this mean one or more of my RAM sticks is defective? How would I check? Thanks.

Scratch that request. Found my old memtest disc and I only have 3GB. Thought for sure I had 4...will have to physically check.
