    I have a Packard Bell GA-8SIMLNF Motherboard which is meant to have 256Mb or RAM but when you startup and check the RAM in the My Computer properties it only displays 192Mb and this is the same if you look in the BIOS also.

    Anybody have any idea why this may be??

    Thanx

    The motherboard likely has integrated video, right? In which case 64MB of RAM is allocated to the integrated video. You may be able to reduce that amount in the BIOS but if its slow and you are looking to improve its performance then you likely want to add more RAM.
