COMPUTER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE ADDED MEMORY

\015 I added 256mb ram to my computer for a total of 512mb. when i boot up i get an error message saying i only have 256mb and press F1 to continue or F2 for setup. how do i make it recognize my memory? when i run Crucialscan, it says i have 512mb total memory, but the computer is not recognizing it\015

Answers :

Are the memory cards the same? Try swapping the memory cards inside the computer. It is also important to go into the Setup (F2) once the new memory has been added. The setup keeps track of the hardware changes to your computer, and the additional memory needs to be saved in the Setup configuration. Please let me know what happens and thank you. Binary Bob
