System does not recognise 4G RAM
I have an HP elitebook 6930p running XP pro.
It came with 2G installed RAM and I have now installed another 2G module - exactly the same as the original one.
CPUZ says I have 4G installed RAM, the BIOS says I have 4G installed but system properties says 2.96G
Dave that 2.96GB is what the operating system is reporting it can access, system memory That is not the value of what is installed on the computer. Almost never is the system memory equivilent to the actual amount of memory installed on a computer/laptop
