Go to your BIOS and check how much ram is shared with the system!

Is this a laptop?

Have you tried checking to make sure the ram is seated properly?

IMO,check out at the POST screen if your memories are recognized. See if it says 1GB or 512MB. If at the POST screen says 512MB then clearly it's something hardware issue (or bios outdated version).

Need a 512mb or 1gb (184-pin) RAM stick
Hey SF, I'm in need of a RAM stick that will work for a Dell Dimension 2400. Anyone know where I could get a cheap stick? Or anyone have one they could part with? Prefer 1gb but beggers can't be choosers. Currently the DD2400 only has 256mb of RAM. :S Thanks, Steve
