I tested different RAM in both slots and I fear the problem lies in the motherboard. I have 2 RAM slots in this HP Pavillion N3250 laptop.
When I plug one stick of 128mb RAM in slot#1, the BIOS reports: Base=640, Extended=121856, Reserved=384, Video=8192, Total RAM=131072
The same stick, when plugged into slot#2, shows: Base=640, Extended=56320, Reserved=384, Video=8192, Total RAM=65536
I don't know what, if anything, can be done about this. Any thoughts? THANX!
