RAM (base and shared?)

By boyevul

  1. I have a machine with a G-Force FX 5500 256 DDR graphics card, and three sticks of SDRAM (1) 512 and (2) 256.

    When I check the system it returns this :

    Computer:
    Intel (R) Celeron(TM) CPU
    1200MHz
    1.21 GHz, 512 MB RAM

    and when starting up it lists the 5,000,000 ram + 1024 shared memory.

    does this mean the computer is getting the full ram potential or did I do something wrong?

    Most Intel based PIII systems support Max 512MB total memory.

    What is the make and model of your motherboard? What chipset, i815?

    Happy Computing,
    Sharam.

    I also notice that your stick of 512mb is ecc registered. Does your motherboard support ecc registered ram?

    Give us a link to your mobo's homepage please. If you don't know what motherboard you have, you can use that same program you used to get your ram details to get your motherboard make and model.

    the first stick isnt the problem - its the two i just put in.

    and yeah - it can only handle 512 (the program ya'll pointed that out.)

    thanks for the fast responses :)
