Missing Memory

by iwuud2 / August 18, 2006 9:35 PM PDT

I have a Acer Aspire E650 desktop pc.It came with 2gb of memory from the factory. I just added 2 one gig sticks, my system is showing that I have only 3,320 MB of memory. What happened to the remaining 776 mb of memory??? I read in another forum about this same issue with a E 650 machine, but.... can't remember where the forum was..LOL

Any Ideas?

Thanks Robert

This is a limitation of a 32bit OS.

Not too widely discussed, but it is proper for this OS. In fact some notice reduced performance with maximum RAM.

I haven't noticed any performance drop with the max RAM. Don't get me wrong about the Aspire E650, it is a nice machine!
