Not sure if this has Been answered already which I'm sure it has but anyway here it goes. I use a notebook computer with 512MB of Ram. I know low by today's standards. Anywho this is my issue. My laptop is only showing that I have 384MB of Ram in system properties . I think I went to crucial or some place and it did detect that I had two 256MB of ram in both slots so I'm guessing it could be something simple. Well I'm hoping it's something simple actually, haha. So yeah hopefully someone can answer what is going on. anything that can get me on my way to figuring it out would be nice. Thank you

Is your Video Card 128mb.....

that would be correct 512 - 128 = 384

if you run your Video card using lower memory then the performance of it would suffer.

You could get more Memory
