Memory okay I need to add more memory and I am pretty sure I know what I am doing. Now,How do I find out how much memory my computer can handle? I was told that if I put too much in then there may be wasted money and wasted memory that isnt going to get used. Can I put a full GB in and end up with 1.256 or should I only put in a 512 to end up with 768?

It does not show up in post or windows xp sp2 but does show the full 1024 in cpu-z. the motherboard is a gigabyte ga-7vt600. I have not upgraded the bios yet, if that is it, because the program keeps crashing. I thinking about getting a 1gb stick and see what happens (see if it sees the full size), but before I do that I think I should try

I put a 1gb expansion ram in my toshiba satellite M35X-S149.  Did it with the battery out.  Put the new ram in the empth slot - - 256 mb in the other slot from the factory.  When I turned on the power, the green power light came on and the computer made a series of beeps in a specific pattern.  1 beep, pause, 3 beeps, pause, 3 beeps, pause, 1 beep.  Then nothing else happened.  I pulled the new ram and this still happened. What does this mean / how do I fix it. Help very much appreciated
