RAM Issue, Im new here.
The other day I bought 2x 1gb DDR2 sticks of Kingston off Newegg.
I plugged them into my Asus M3A78-EM desktop motherboard. Everything works fine...but my issue is that I dont feel its working its full potential..my reason being this:
PRIOR to me installing the new RAM I had 2 sticks of 1gb and 2 sticks of 512. This SHOULD EQUAL 3gb of total system memory, but when I went to my system properties it said there was only 2.75gb installed. So I "wtf'd" thinking maybe it was the RAM.
Well I bought the new sticks, plugged them in, totalling 4gb of 4 dual channel memory sticks in respective banks, and now its reading 3.25gb of system memory, half of what I bought to increase it.
What should I do guys?
Thanks in advance and all that, Im new here.
