    Disappearing RAM?

    I was on my way to device manager to sort something out and noticed that I had 1.98 GB of RAM. I am quite sure that I used to have 2GB or RAM. Is this a problem (obviously losing .02 GB wouldn't have any significant effect, I'm thinking along the lines of is my RAM dying?)?
    My computer does seem to boot a bit slower these days, but I assumed it was due to more things loading.

    Possible that I am a bit mad and it always said 1.98 GB though.

    Thanks, Olie

    Kill teh gobbies!!!11!

    Umm well, it probably got ate by something, like onboard devices.

    You could run memtest / windiag on your system to put your mind at rest, it'll find obvious faults (tho you may have noticed them by now like, BSODs and .. stuff).

    Have you got an onboard graphics card? if so that's where it's gone.
