Specs: Windows 7, i7 620 / 4GB
I have 2 sticks of 2GB memory. When I use CPU-Z it has slots 1 - 4 showing. It is showing my memeory in slots 1 & 3. Does this mean I have 4 slots or is that for computers that have 4 slots.

That would mean you have 4 slots and slot 2 and 4 are empty

If builders built buildings like programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker that came along would destroy civilization.

If all the slots are together then there is only 2. The ones I saw were in the bottom cover.

Read the users manual of your mainboard.
There you will normally find the layout of your mainboard, where the memory slots are located and how many memory slots are available.

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

If you can't see them then how can you install ram to it?

The software is generic and may not be exact for your model.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

It may show the other phantom slots because your board's chipset supports 4 slots, but being a smaller or more economical board, only has 2 installed. If they are not there, you cannot use them.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
