My system came with 256mb DDR which is too little for what i do, so ive added a stick of 128mb DDR.
Windows is still only registering the 256mb stick :tazz:
Ive used Everest Home Edition to look at the hardware, and it is showing both sticks being present, but only 256mb available. The only difference between the 2 sticks is that one of them is PC2100, and the other is PC2700. My M/B is compatable with both sticks 133/166mhz so i cant see why both sticks aint running at the lower speed and totalling 384mb
In my bios i only have the choice of setting the ram by speed or manually, there is no frequancy setting.
anyone any suggestions?

Onboard graphics? Using 128Mb? If so, that's where the extra memory's gone.
