Strange sp1 after effect.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First of all i have vista 32bit. Before sp1 vista said i had 3.5 gb of ram. After i installed sp1 it said i have 4.00gb ram. Anyone else come across this? I know theres a few treads out there that have talked about this, I just wanted to see your thoughts about it. I know for a fact that its still only recognizing 3.5 because its 32bit but any idea why it says 4?

I think they corrected the code to detect the amount of PHYSICAL memory installed, vs. the amount of memory that the OS can actually use.

Don't get me started.

They must think we are really stupid. They changed that display to reflect the actual physical memory installed and nothing under the covers changed. Run Dxdiag and the exact same amount of memory is allocated in vista as before you installed sp1.

How about an actual Release Notes for SP1 that lists all the crap/games they played in it.
