    I have a Dell 1521 running Vista, I have had no issues with the laptop, it runs great. I wanted to added mmore memory just for and little boost and max out the system. I purchased some Kingston 2 gig ram modules which are compatible for the system and installed them. The Bios does not register that I have 4 gigs of Ram just the normal 2 gigs. I have updated the Bios incase this was an issue and this did not fix the issue. I have reseated the ram, still just the 2 gigs are registered.

    Is there anything else that I need to do for my system to resgister the other 2 gigs of ram for the system.

    Thanks

    Welcome to TSG compman_74? Happy Hunting...

    Have you tried the RAM individually? It may be bad.
