...received a hand me down coputer today. Upon dxdiag.exe shows only 160 gb Ram. Looks like there are 4 1 gig sticks mounted to motherboard.

Is my computer not recognizing the installed ram?

thx

160gb would be the hard drive not RAM. To see how much RAM is installed right click on computer and click properties it will display the amount of RAM.

When you opened up DXDIAG What does it say for "Memory:"?
