Didn't think there would be. I don't know that I would say 4 GB is useless, just that you can only use 3 of the 4 GB installed. It could be worse, if you go by the service manual for that model,
Aspire M1610/Veriton M261 Service Guide
it is only supposed to support up to 2 GB total (2x1). Guess they uppped it in a bios update for those that got one with those specs.
