what is the best way to troubleshoot a PC (XP) that should have 2 gig RAM but system says it only has 1 gig?

1. - Check the RAM visually - to see that it's correctly inserted into it's sockets, and to read off the modules as to what they are labelled as.

2. - Run a system check (eg Everest click here ) and check what it says about the RAM.

3. Check the motherboard specification against the type of RAM fitted.

4, Report back here what the results of the above are.
