    Hi Guys
    Long time since I last visited:eek:
    I recently purchased a Dell Vostro 3500 I3 laptop and understood it came with 3Megs (2+1). However, Windows 7 indicates I only have 2MB. Was I short changed, has the 1MB failed and thus is not visable or is there really 3MB and Windows is reporting something else? How do I verify.Cheers,
    Ken

    Are you looking under System?

    Go to: Control Panel > System and Security > System
    Next to: Installed memory, you will see how much physical memory is installed on the PC.

    It should say 3GB there if you have 3GB of RAM.

    ---

    If you indeed have 2GB, they must have shipped the PC with just 2GB. If a stick had failed, the
    PC either wouldn't boot, or it would boot with beeps or errors.
