I just added additional RAM to my Dell E520. It's a 32 bit system so I bought 2 cartridges of 2gb, each of DD2 PC5300 from Crucial. I figure 4 gb is all the system will recognize.
The rig runs a **** of a lot better, (surprise, surprise...), but I noticed when I went to system in the control panel, that the machine is only recognizing 2.99 gb of the new RAM.
Why is that? does it make any difference in the computer's performance, and if so, is there anything I can do to rectify the situation?
I appreciate any input any of you fine ladies and gents can give me
