I am working on a eMachines model W1700
. It came with one 128MB module of DDR PC2100 (266mhz) RAM. I replaced the factory RAM with two sticks of Kingston 256MB PC2100 (266mhz) RAM.
Windows Properties report there only being 256MB of RAM, minus the 32MB of dedicated memory for the on board video controller. Everest, however, reports that there are two RAM modules each being 256MB.
Has anyone had this problem and solved it?
The computer is running fine except for the RAM reporting error. The Task Manager report 228MB.
