isnt there some settings in windows where you can increase the amount of ram used?
I have Epia MII12000 mother i just got, I also got a 1GB memory stick.... I hooked everything up. Everything works fine, but the memory only shows up as 512mb and not 1GB. I have no clue what is wrong. The spec on the motherboard says it can take up to 1gb.

Even in bios it register as 512mb i dont get why.
I would bring it back into the place where you got it and ask them to prove it was a gig. Does it show any markings inticating that?
Progress,.... that is what I keep forgetting ;)

ya its a legit 1gb stick, i looks up this long azz model number on google and it says 1gb.
Do you have another stick you can put in the motherboard to see if it registers that other stick ok? I would try that and see what it does.
Also, do you have any sort of "quick boot" features turned on? Go in the bios and turn off any those, sometimes the quick boot stuff doesn't do full memory tests and maybe that could have something to do with it.....?
Some of the memory is being allocated to the onboard video. Not a related problem.Originally Posted by EricE
