Even though the ram slots are 1-4, they're actually known as "banks". There are 2 pair or banks,, as 1 bank = 2 slots. Notice that the ram slots are colored to better ID the bank pair when ram is installed. It's best to install as a pair in order to use the DDRx method of ram use. It may not readily seen if all ram slots are used with similar ram sticks. i still don't see just what ram is allocated in the system, all I saw was slot 1. I like to see full report of all slots. Also, I did see the 512mb for ram, yet I didn't see the 256mb if that what it suppose to be. all, I can say for now, that if that mtrbd. allocates system ram for video use, then that's not the norm for an installed video card. That could be a solution they provided at the time when ram costed $ and/or to better the mtrbd. specs. Either that or your version cpu-Z just confuses the issue.
