I attached CPU-Z screenshots in order to simplify the explanation. Basically both Windows and BIOS won't recognize 2 Gb of DDR2 RAM,only 896 Mb (1Gb), even if the sticks are identical (two kingston sticks, same model).

What is this extended RAM, that appears also in the BIOS setup?

What can I do in order to make the PC recognize the 2 Gb?
