    I have an Asus P4S800D-E. According to the manual it will support 64mb to 1gb Dimms in any of its four Dimm sockets. There are 2 blue sockets and 2 black ones. The manual recommends using the two blue ones first, so at the moment I have one 512 card in each blue socket. XP recognizes these no problem. However, this morning I added a 1Gb Dimm to one of the black sockets and XP doesnÂ’t recognize it. I checked it from Everest too and it doesnt see any more memory.

    All memory is the same brand and type (Samsung) and is in the Asus compatibility list for my motherboard.

    Any suggestions?

    Don't delete it. You should just go into Thread Tools-->Mark Solved. That way people can see how you solved your problem (however obvious it was.)
