Remove the memory from the system and insert only one chip in the system.  Reboot and see if the computer recognizes it and what capacity it is.

Turn off and move the chip to the other slot.  Reboot and see if the computer recognizes it and what capacity it is.

Report the results here.

It is possible that one slot is not working and that is what this test is for.

Sounds like you have a bad memory slot.   What's the model # of your Latitude?
