Re: [NTLK] help, i lost my 2100's system ram

It's definitely a 2100. I checked the RAM when I got it. Also, the
previous owner had it under Apple Care and Apple replaced both the
screen and the motherboard a year or so ago. I never actually checked
this, but the Newt and screen look absolutely mint, and the seller was
very reliable. I am just stumped. I cannot figure out why my 2100 is
only showing 912k ram.

oriingal message:
I finally got around to doing a brain wipe of a very nice mp 2100 i
acquired a while back.
I then did a restore using a card backup from my upgraded 2000.

when i restarted the 2100, it shows only 912 k system ram!
(in Memory Info, it also shows: ROM Version 2.1 (717260)-1

Is this a common problem (or common mistake)? Can anyone on the list
suggest how can I get my 4 mb of system RAM back?
