    Are you sure you`ve got 512MB of ram?

    I`m assuming that you have onboard shared graphics at 32MB. 256MB of ram - 32 MB shared graphics = 224Mb ram remaining.

    Is it possible that the shop has taken some ram out?

    If I were you, I`d contact the shop and ask them what they have done and why .

    Regards Howard :)

    Take it back to the shop and tell them, you`re not happy. Demand that they fix it for you.

    Why did you take it into a shop in the first place?

    Regards Howard :)
