I have an older eMachines Tower 333c (Win 98SE). It's manual states: " Memory Configuration
            •      System Memory       
                  - Two banks of 3.3V EDO/SDRAM (168pin unbuffered DIMM) with max 256MB
                  - EDO/SDRAM operation in 66MHz front side bus and 100MHz SDRAM with 100MHz FSB.
            •      Flash Memory      : Programmable 2MB Flash memory"

I'm finding that when installing SDRAM, the system is only showing a portion of the ram (50% or less). What can be done?
