Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I added a 256 mb ram on top of my original 256 mb ram to make it 512 mb on my ASUS A6500R. how come when i check my system properties it show 384 mb? what's the maximum expandable ram for my laptop?


Answers :

The onboard video is probably using shared memory and that is why it is only showing 384mb. You could try going into the BIOS and lowering the shared memory for the video. This will reduce the computer's video performance but if you do not use it for games or video it should be ok.
It isn't only the amount of RAM that's important, it's also the type and speed that has to match your system. Try this link for more information. You don't have everything posted.
