At boot the memmory test reads the full 512MB and then some but under Windows reads 511MB.
What give's?
Under Si Soft Sandra the readings only read 519 & 525 respectfully.
I'm running a 1.4Ghz. AMD OCed to 1.432, with the right code, Abit KT7A Raid and 40Gig.WD hard drive using Win.98.
If I OC more system tends to give VXD warning message.
Is it the Win98 causing the problem or could it be something else.
I turned off scanreg because it was giving no end of headaches and I have had fewer probs.
When running SiSoft memm test it will freeze or give VXD warning message but after I press a key will give a reading,usually, but after the SiSoft looses video definition. I'm using an Assus 7100 GForce 2. The system seems to run well with the tweaks I have made with the register and auto & config but has trouble with OCing. I changed memmory and system has fewer probs.
So what gives?
