One last thing. I have two sticks of 512 DDR sticks. They are the exact same brand/model. I plug them both in and it only reads as me having 512 RAM. But when I take one out it only reads 256. Ive tried every possible combination ( mobo has 4 slots) of plugging them in and I get the same problem each time. Obviously my machine is only reading them at 1/2 potential. Why is this and how do I correct it? (not that anyone really needs 1GB of RAM lol)

Does your motherboard support 512MB's of RAM per slot? You may need to update your BIOS to recognize it, or maybe it just won't be able to recognize more than 256.

Well I found out that my motherboard has maximum memory potential of 4GB. So, I know it supports at least 1GB per slot...right? As for my BIOS, I wasnt able to do anything with updating it to recognize it =/
