I have a Dell Poweredge 2600 server with 2 GB RAM. But after rebooting 2 days back it gives an error that system memory  has been changed & shows only 256 MB RAM as default. It has 4 RAM modules each of 512 MB so am confused reagarding how this could be. Please let me know the resolution to revert the RAM back to 2 GB.

go into the bios and turn os install mode off, os install mode limits the ram the os sees to 256mb

Thanks for this solution, it was driving me insane.

Turning off OS Install mode in BIOS definitely fixed the problem.
