Don't know if this has happend to anyone else, but every once in a while my computer will stop reading a portion of my RAM. I have 1.50 GB in there right now, but then sometimes when I open up My Computer window i'll see it has 1.25 GB. Any ideas as to whats going on?

Use the Memory Diagnosis tool.

This might help.

You also could try reseating the RAM. I've seen this work more than once.

Shut down the PC and unplug the power cable from the back. Open the box, pop out the sticks using the side latches. Remove them from the machine and then reinstall them (push them down FIRMLY or your PC will not boot). You will feel the latches snap in if you've done it right.

Good luck!

Also, if you run onboard video, that can take away from the amount of RAM that shows up in Systems Properties as well, but 250MB (more or less) of onboard video IS a little high.
