Asus P5LD2-Deluxe Motherboard - Appropriated Ram?

Hi All,

I have an Asus P5LD2 Deluxe Motherboard that I want to upgrade the memory on.  It currently only has 1gb of DDR2 (2 x 512meg stick)

I purchased a matched pair of PNY 2gb DDR2 sticks, the machine POSTS & boots fine.  In the BIOS it shows up as

System Memory: 5200MB
Appropriated: 1500
Available: 3500

I'm currently running a 32 bit OS, so I understand that it will only be able to use a maximum of 4gb. I'm prepping to upgrade to Windows 7 Enterprise x64 when I have a chance..

What does the "Appropriated" memory mean? My Google-Fu turned up that I need to enable memory remapping, but I cannot find that option anywhere in the BIOS.  I should note I also upgraded to the latest stable bios for the motherboard last night.

Cheers

No, that was my next step I ran out of time last night!

Bugger of it is, other than the memory this machine is more than enough power for what I use it for @ home.  So I can't really justify upgrading to the wife.

Asus support? no thanks the machine is quite old.

I'll try removing the two 512mb sticks and go from there.
