Just got a new memory stick today and installed it in the computer, but for some reason it doesnt read in the system properties but shows up fine in the system information, also the bios does not read that it is there. now my initial thought and assumptions are that it is bad. can some one with a little bit more knowledge about the memory comfirm my suspicions.

May not be bad but sounds like incompatible. You just don't go into a store and buy a speed and number of pins, that is not how to do it.
www.crucial.com, kingston.com and corsair.com all have configurators where you can out in motherboard model or pc brand and they will give you compatible model numbers, then buy them wherever you like.

Thanks for the info guys come to find out the memory could be fine and the speed but the motherboard system on which i was trying to install it on each slot could only handle 256 mb chips so trying to install one 512 mb chip wasnt going to work which could be the reason why the system properties was showing one but not the 512 mb chip but the system information was reading it was there.
