    DDR RAM

    I have just installed 512 Mb of DDR RAM. On boot up, memory check confirms this but after loading WIN ME, System Properties report 480 Mb of RAM. Anybody know what's going on?

    This may be a longshot - do you have a video card that uses shard memory? I'm not sure if these are still around, but a popular Intel-based video card used to share part of the system RAM (since it did not have any onboard ram of its own).

    Spot on, Mark. Checking BIOS settings again, I've discovered that 32Mb are shared with the onboard video card.
