hi all

i am new to this forum and i am hoping someone have a solution for my problem.

i have just installed 1GB of RAM (1 stick) into the system (and taking the old one out), but the control panel-system shows me only 523,760KB?? when i run the scans from Crucial web site, it shows that i have 512MB also..... however, i tested with CPUZ, it shows 1024MB!! where are the rest of my RAM? which one is more accurate? i've adjust the BIOS already...

System: AMD Athlon XP2000+, Windows 2000 SP4 and 128MB AGP. my ECS K7VTA3 (5.0) motherboard supports up to 3GB (3x1GB per slot).

It is possible that windows has not noticed there is new hardware. Go to the Device Manager and scan for new hardware
