I recently installed 32 Bit 14.04 on my old XP computer. It seems to have installed without issues, however all of the RAM is not being recognized. In the system info it says 2.4 GiB, I believe I have 1024 MB installed.

This is what I can tell you about my computer. P4 2.6 GHz Graphics 8656 x86/mmx/SSE2

    2.4 GiB > 1 GiB = 1024 MB. Something doesn't add up here. Your system information shows more RAM than you claim to have installed. – David Foerster Apr 26 '16 at 14:20
  • Could you add the output of this command: free -h --mega? – Danibix Apr 26 '16 at 15:13

I think you have 1024MB installed memory plus 1200MB or so swap.

Use free -m to see the memory and swap amount in megabytes or free -h for a "human readable" representation.

(Use cat /proc/meminfo to see complete details about memory )
