Did you checked the memory that it's ok,
the BIOS see the whole 750?
Maybe that your memmory burned?
Do you have 512+256MB ?

Re: info memory in linux

check the memory with the command:

cat /proc/meminfo

Linux?. Yes, of course.

Re: info memory in linux


is the memory actually there. does bios detect and can u see it in the boot up message / dmesg or /var/log/messages.

cat /proc/meminfo to see the memory.

and finally try if this helps. (specifically the sections on mem)
