HiYa All ! Wanted 2 touch base with you people about RAM problem. Just installed a stik of "two sided" 512 Ram with 256 ram already in there. This is total of 768RAM . Now my system information tells me i have "only 512RAM" !?! My OS is Win98se,IE6 . As i have stated it is a stik of two sided 512MB of Ram. Have i missed a procedure or step ? I`m new at this so bare with me. Thanx in advance people Dean :)

Windows 98 cannot address more than 512MB of memory without a little tweaking in the first place. Your motherboard more than likely won't support over 512MB either. Look at the specs for the board to see what it will accept.

boot with just the 512 in.

does it say 512 or 256. if it says 256 then either your board doesnt support high density ram or it doesnt support a 512 chip at all.
