Memory upgrade oddity - compaq m2010us laptop

\015 This machine has 2 banks and everyone says the machine will run 1gb.. I install the proper ddr-sodimms 2 x 512 and it won't boot. I remove 1 stick and it boots fine. I look in the bios and it's like a 3 page bios, the only entry concerning ram is on the first page - it's a hard-coded entry stating MEMORY = 480mb - there's no way to adjust the amount of installed ram in the bios.. I flashed the bios to the latest ver and the song remains the same. Initially the machine had 2 x 256. I retried this combination and it works fine. I tried 1 x 512 plus 1 x 256 and no boot. So I believe I've tried all combinations and ruled out a faulty slot.. Prior to ordering the memory I ran the crucial scanner .exe on it and crucial said go for 2 x 512.. Is there something I'm overlooking here?\015
