  1. if they are both the same 2 gig it will see 4 gig but on the title you put 2 and the 2 of 1 giig each stick so that wont made 4 gig .
  2. Best answer
    Im sure the 2 ONE GIG MEM CHIPS WAS IN EITHER 13 OR 2 AND 4 SLOTS FOR DUAL MEM BANDWITH OK... if you have the 2 in there and add a single 3rd chip you will loose out on the dual mem bandwith.
