Ram and Bios issue

\015 Someone please help I have 2 sticks of ram installed and only one is showing up. It will not boot with only one stick of ram installed I get the infamous beeps when only one is installed. I went out and bought another stick( all are the same brand and speed) thinking I had one bad well that didnt work. I have used CPUZ and it only shows one installed even though there are two in the slots. I have tried every possible config in the slots. It will NOT boot with they are in the same colored slots or as said before with only one installed. Running vista 32 on acer T180 Tried updating Bios but Bios does not seem to upgrade either Please any info would be greatly apperciated\015

Answers :

Did you upgrade to vista
Make sure your other stick of Ram is installed properly, once that is done make sure that the stick of ram is compatible with that computer. After that even, check to see if your computer is capable of processing that amount of RAM.
