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.

Computer:
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
