windows not recognizing memory

I have an Abit BE6 motherboard, with 3 memory slots, each capable of 256M of RAM. I currently have a 256M card in slot 1 and a 128M card in slot 2. But during the bootup memory test, only 262M is recognized. In fact, after buying a new 256M card and putting it in slot 3, and then moving the cards around trying various configurations, I realize that my pc is only recognizing 128M per slot. I have since returned the extra memory card to the store, and am now back to 256M in slot 1 and 128M in slot 2.

Can anyone help me? I can provide memory part numbers, bios setup information, etc. I would like to upgrade to 768M eventually.

Running win98se.

According to the Abit website your board should recoginize up to 768mb of memory. The only bios upgrade i could find was the BE6 II V2.0 which i do not know if it will work on a BE6.


That is the problem with older hardware. It seems that all the upgrades disappear off the net after a while.
