1/2 gb is very low, since some will be allocated to your onboard video. Plus you should really have matched pairs of ram sticks.

Did you remove some of the RAM to try install? You can plug it back in now to see. 528 is way too low to run with a vid card.

Did you install from XP desktop or boot the WIn7 DVD? WIpe the HD or format?

Go online if possible to check optional Windows Updates for newer drivers. Update the video card.

Can you default to onboard video chip in BIOS to check the difference?
