XP Not Recognizing Ram

Specs: Windows XP
I am running a HP dv9000 notebook with XP.
This morning I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled windows because my computer had been crashing. It works really well except for now it is running slowly. I checked the system part of the control panel and noticed it is saying that I only have 256mb of RAM installed currently.

AMD Turion 64 x2 Mobile
803 MHz (seems to fluctuate IDK if this is also part of the problem)
256 MB of RAM
Physical Address Extension.

I installed SP3 earlier and then subsequently uninstalled it thinking that was the problem. The BIOS screen and Belarc Advisor are both showing that I have 2GB Ram installed.

I have been trying things all day, none of them worked! Please help so I can get my computer back.

Just for grins see task manager for physical ram.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
