Weird memory problem

My roommate recently installed a couple sticks of VS512SDS333 in his Sony VAIO laptop. Everything is working fine, but Windows says that it is only 896MB, ~128MB less than he should. What is odd about that is that he just replaced 2 sticks of 256MB and it said he only had 384MB, so he had thought that one side had crashed on it. I thought it might have been a couple of pins on the memory, but even that wouldn't explain the constant 128MB drop in detected RAM. Is there anything he can do about it?

Lemme guess, he has a 128 MB integrated video card?

 

Yes he does. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you are implying that the video card takes part of the memory for itself. He said he does remember it originally not doing that, though. Is it because of SP2 or anything of that nature? Or is he just mistaken?
