Computer not showing all the installed RAM

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Someone threw out a computer with XP Home Edition.
Other than a missing front cover, everything works.

It is a Compaq Presario SR1303WM.

Speed supported PC2700 DDR SDRAM DIMM

What it has for RAM.

Capacity   128 MBytes
Memory Type   DDR (PC2100)
Speed   133 MHz

Capacity   256 MBytes
Memory Type   DDR (PC3200)
Speed   200 MHz

I bought another 256 Mb to replace the 128 Mb, but the computer is
only showing 448 Mb of RAM.

Can someone help me?

Thanks,
              Andy

Some people pay extra to look into their case through a transparent

It will take a gig - 512 x 2 - according to HP - some similar Asus mobos
can do 2G.

The mobo has uses 64 meg for the integrated Via video.

256 + 256 = 448 + 64

Yeah, funny.

The Windows XP license is worth $100 (US).

Or at least some people are buying and selling them for that :-)

I bought a copy of XP Pro Sp3 for $20 a couple of months ago.

And if you put the CD key in a search engine, you will get many
results...

John--in a recent trip to Russia, I bought a cracked copy of Windows 7
Final edition.  In the past I've not had a problem with my $5 copy of
Vista I bought in Thailand.  Do you think I should take a chance
installing it in a new machine?  What's the worse than can happen?  If
I install an AV program, it should detect any keyboard loggers or
viruses stuff embedded in the OS, right?

BTW--here's a funny one:  these pirate software shops in Russia were
selling...cracked anti-virus programs!  All for $5 a DVD/CD, the going
rate for all software.

I also got Autocad and a bunch of stuff that would have cost me
several thousand dollars in the USA.  Of course I do support buying
legal software and usually do, but I'm not going to spend $1k buying
an Adobe suite of programs I use only once in a blue moon.

If you put the CD key (or serial number) in a search engine and
get results, what you have is worthless. If they gave you a unique
serial/key, then you can probably find a good media to use it
with.

I have never messed with viruses, I just copy out important data,
delete the installation, and then restore a known good copy of
Windows.

Good luck and have fun.

You say "Good luck and have fun" to an admitted software pirate, eh?

Better than somebody who put their own family at risk when stalked by
a crazed cyberstalker, just to win a point on Usenet. Now who would
that be?

One beautiful way to control your computer at will. This is a known fact and
installing it especially from Russia ,you will find a surprise later on when you
get
hacked. Bank and every kind of account that you set up including your ISP.

I tend to agree in general, though I had no problems with several
years of using a Vista $5 copy I bought in Bangkok.  If I was to be
owned, I'd have known it by now.  But still, it makes me pause--
perhaps I'm playing Russian roulette?
