Memory Stats & Info - Total Does NOT Match Installed
« on: March 01, 2013, 12:46:29 PM »
I'm getting Strange info on the Memory Stats & Info window.
The Installed data is correct, but the Total Does NOT Match Installed.
I've Attached a pic so you can see.
Could there be some kind of hidden Ram Disk?
Most windows apps just report the 2.75 GB as the total.
"Cleaning" makes little difference.
Using cleanmem v2.4.3 on XP.

Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Your on a 32 bit OS. So the OS cant use all the memory. If you need to use more than 3GB then you need to have a 64bit OS :wink:

Thanks Shane,
I just added the second 2 GB stick and was wondering ...
Can't believe I hadn't heard of that before.
Thanks again.

No problem :-)

Thats why all the new systems coming out have 64 bit Windows because all the new systems have more than 4GB of ram in them now.
