I have a Dell Precision WorkStation 530 Workstation with 2 sticks of 128MB. I bought an additional 2 sticks of 512MB PC800 from crucial.com. Windows does not seem to recognize the ram. BIOS recognizes it but the system properties only sees 256 no matter what I try.
I tried only using the 2 sticks of 512, and windows only sees 256. I tried with all 4 sticks in and tried rotating and alternating the locations. No matter what I try windows will only recognize 256.
Then I did a crucial scan (when I had the 2 512s) and it correctly recognized the 1GB - yet windows wouldn't. Any ideas?
