    so i just bought two 512 sticks of ram from new egg and placed them in my desktop. My computer properties only reads 512. Cpuz reads both sticks and the bios reads bank one initialized and bank two uninialized. it has me going for a loop since cpuz reads both including the no name manf. any thoughts on this would be super!!
    thanks

    Don't buy no name ram?

    Seriously though have you tried swapping the sticks?

    When you swap the sticks does it change which banks the bios sees as initialized / not?
