<ASK> memory:wrong value reported by BIOS. 4001 MB instead of 4096 MB

Dear everyone... I'd like to ask...


I just upgraded my notebook memory from 2gb to 4gb...


The original memory was samsung 2gb. then i add 2gb corsair memory


when i checked on taskmanager i got 4001 mb instead of 4096mb. Also when i check with SIW (system information for windows) software, there is a


"memory:wrong value reported by BIOS" notification.


additional information: both memory sodimm ddr3 pc 10600 1333 mhz


i've tried 1) msconfig unchecked maximum memory and 2) swap the RAM place (A to B, B to A). Still the same...

What can I do to fix this wrong value...?



Thank you so much as always for the great people here...
