What happened to my RAM? Tags: Memory GPUs RAM Windows 7 Last response: December 14, 2010 2:04 PM in Memory Share starjet December 14, 2010 11:43:04 AM I have 2GB of RAM, (PC running Windows 7 Ultimate) and have shared 128MB for the Intel GPU on my Core i3-530. Then my PC detects my RAM as 1.75GB. My question is, what happened to the remaining 128MB? Ps. I took it as 1.75 GB = 1GB + 1GB*(3/4), then 256MB remains, of which I have shared 128MB to the GPU. But what of the remaining 128MB? More about : happened ram o1die a c 128 } Memory December 14, 2010 12:01:05 PM Windows creates a small system file when installed.
