I've got a Satellite Pro A100 (Not sure which one...)
It came with 2x256mb RAM, both of which are fitted. I noticed my laptop running slow, so I checked what it said on the properties of My Computer - which said 192mb RAM...

Any idea what's going on?
I've had a look inside, both are fitted sturdily, although the one on the right won't push in fully? There's a small gap (about 1/2mm) inbetween the little nick and the actual fitting. Is this what's causing it? Or maybe it's faulty?

Please help me out!
Thanks in advance,

Diana

According to your problem description I presume one of memory modules is not recognized by system and the result of shown 192 Mb Ram only indicate to me that your notebook has shared memory graphic card.

Satellite Pro A100 is pretty new notebook and, in my opinion, you should contact service. The warranty must be valid and if everything is defective it will be replaced for free.

If possible tell us which Satellite Pro you have exactly. This info you can find on bottom side of your notebook.
