Hello and welcome to geekstogo.
I may be misunderstanding your question, however your motherboard only has 2 slots, not 4. Your motherboard can have up to two 1GB DDR sticks, giving you a total of 2GB.

Yes, you must have misunderstood me. I am wondering if my motherboard can use high density ram, not the usual low density.

It seems that it can only use low density 1GB sticks, but high density sticks of lesser size (512mb, 256mb, etc.).

No but I wouldn't hurt anything to try it if you already have the stick. Worse case scenario is that the system will refuse to boot or boot up with no display.

Hi there,

It's possible that it's either:
  • A 512MB stick, or
  • The reason why you can't use a high-density 1GB memory module
Cheers
