    I am running Win XP Pro on an Abit KA7-100 board with an Athlon 700 CPU. WD-80GB HDD.

    A few weeks ago I upped the memory with a 512 stick of Crucial memory to 1 GB of SDRAM. Everything was fine.

    A couple of days ago the onboard RAM was reported as being only 512 MB. I reseated the memory modules without any effect.

    Overnight, problems appeared. The principal one being that the mouse pointer is frozen in the centre of the screen.

    The mouse is a Logitech MX700 cordless optical mouse.

    I reinstalled the Logitech software without effect and attempted to reconnect the mouse with the base station. Result : No apparent effect.

    The pointer is still frozen, after several reboots.

    I propose to take out the memory and reseat it.

    Is the order in which the memory banks are populated significant ?

    Any ideas or suggestions will be gratefully received !

    T.I.A.

    Since your only reading 512 instead of 1 gig it maybe that the first stick isn't reading so as well as taking out a stick , make sure the stick is always in the first slot.
