Only recognising 1GB RAM

Hi I have just upgraded to Windows 7 from XP...
I have 2GB RAM installed on my laptop but for some reason Windows 7 is only recognising 1GB ?

Reboot into bios and check if it set to 2 gigs

Check if you have Memory remapping option in BIOS enabled.

Thanks for the quick replies! Just had a look on the BIOS, it is only set to 1GB? :S
Uber Philf, how do I check if that is enabled?

Before we check the Memory remapping, Your BIOS is only recognising 1GB of your 2?

hmm, so for the last year its been telling you that your running 1GB, but you physically have 2GB installed?

Possibly one of your Ram Sticks is faulty?

No, sorry my fault for lack of detail lol. For the past year or so I have had Windows XP installed with 2GB RAM running. Since formatting my hard drive and doing a clean install of Windows 7, I have just realised when I went on System Information that it says 1GB
