I can't find an explanation for this anywhere with Google, so i'm hoping someone here might have an answer to this....good problem I guess. I have four DDR pc3200 sticks in my asus a8ae-le mobo (1 GB, 512mb, 256mb, 256mb). The most recent is a 1 gb ultra stick. After I first installed it about ten days ago, my computer was at 2.18 gigs. I thought nothing of it, I was just satisfied to be over 2 gigs. Now, I just checked my specs, and it's at 2.25 GB's?! What causes this? If it matters, I recently installed a 256 mb Sapphire Radeon x1650 256 mb 64 bit video card and a new 400 watt hec power supply (up from 250) so I could run Guitar Hero . And also, when I installed the 1 gig of memory I put ultra memory coolers on the 1 gb stick and the 512 stick. Any theories? Also, i'm aware that xp has some issues with hibernation on rigs with high memory. Is it reasonably safe for me to hibernate? I installed the hotfix for that "api" issue. Sorry if i'm asking too much. Thanks for your time. Screenshots attached below.
