I am having trouble getting my new RAM to be fully recognized by Windows XP Pro. I have installed 2 identical 1GB modules of DDR 2700 RAM into the first two slots, and removed the old memory. However, my system still only recognizes it as 1GB, and even the reading at crucial.com is incorrect. Here is what it says:
Maximum Memory Capacity: 3072MB
Currently Installed Memory: 1GB
Available Memory Slots: 1
Number of Banks: 3
Dual Channel Support: No
CPU Manufacturer: AuthenticAMD
CPU Family: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2100+ Model 8, Stepping 1
CPU Speed: 1733 MHz
So it seems like my system is reading each of the 1GB sticks as 512MB sticks. I used to have a single 1GB module in and it recognized the full amount.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
