I hope you see this. I finally got around to upgrading my RAM.
(reference question from 6/28/2009, Hardware category, subcategory: RAM, titled Expanding my RAM. I tried responding to it but no response)
Here is what happened:
First, I opened my computer to check it out. Inside there were 2 slots and the original 2 256 MB, PC2100 cards. (also Under the my computer, system info it showed 504MB)
So, I closed it up and went to order my memory.
Second, I ordered the memory. I made the mistake of ordering the wrong type. Your message above said PC2700 but I messed up and ordered 2 512MB PC2100.
Well they came and I did not catch the mistake till now. Since the old 256 cards were PC2100, I decided to try the 2 new 512MB PC2100.
Well, they are in there and working (I am typing this on that computer)
Here is my problem:
When I go to the My Computer and check system information, is still only showing that I have 504 of RAM
I verified that both cards are in the slots properly.
Help what do I do? I am confused. Not sure why my system is even working. But since it is working it is recognizing something from the 2 new cards, but not the full 1G of Ram.
