I finally bit the bullet and upgraded yesterday. Before installing the new OS, I installed 4g of ram ( 2 2gb sticks). Got thru all the installation BS, my goodness Microsoft eats up a lot to memory with all those updates. Any way, I was checking out the specs on my systems on the My Computer page and it only shows that I have 2g of Ram. The other problem is I have a 500gb, but it's only showing that I have 127gb total. I know you want my system info so I'll do the best I can. AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3.00 Ghz 32 bit. I'm going to check out my memory sticks. Maybe one of them isn't seated properly. I have them side by side, as it was shown in my MB book, but was wondering if I should skip a slot. Also, is there something I need to do about my drivers. I'm really worried about my HD space. I know before, the guy who built my system had a partition put in. That got wiped out when I tried to to a repair on my Windows XP and had to do a clean install. When I got the system back up and running it showed all my HD space, now I'm barely showing a third of the space that should be there. I'm really at a lost.
