I dont run XP , but on 98 theres a "system information" tab that tells you all that stuff. Its located in, start, programs, accessories, system tools and then system info. And theres always the post on your BIOS. Let me know if you can do that with XP when youre done. Thanks

Jafo, I went to system info like you said; the only info I could find pertaining to my RAM was Total Physical Memory and Available Physical Memory. In your Win 98 experience should there be more than this? Incidently is it normal for there to be a large disparity between these 2 figures (512 vs 275.59 on my PC)?
Also u mentioned the post on BIOS. I don't know what that means, please can u explain? Thanks

Ok.... when you start your puter the BIOS often counts up your physical ram ..... its a test, and it is to determin how much is in there too.
Now lets get to the real point...... if youre trying to put in more ram and need to know how much your pc can take you first need to let me know who makes your pc, or what kind of motherboard it is. If its, lets say a Dell pc, you can go the their web site and look up your specific pc and it will tell you on there what your memory capacity is.

CPU-Z, unzip it, run it and check out the Memory tab. Smiley
