I finally decided to expand my RAM from 2 512mb to 2 1GB cards doublely my RAM and speed my computer up.\015\012\015\012The BIOS says 2GB RAM, both RAM card slots are good and will work with either of the 1GB RAM cards, they are EDGE tech corp PE197711, 1GB PC24 4200 DDR2 240P DIMM.\015\012\015\012The problem is, I cannot get more than 1.5GB in this computer. It will work with a 1GB and a 512GB card in either slot but will not BOOT with the 2 1GB cards in. Can anyone help me or has anyone experienced the same?\015\012\015\012Thanks\015

So I tried putting back the factory 2GB, and the Wifi worked back. I purchased the 4GB new and bought the same specs PC3-8500 1066Mhz. So what's wrong?
