too little RAM

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)

Hi again Group,

I just put in 2 x 512 MB RAM into my XP Pro (AMD 2500) computer. Now my
"system Properties" is telling me that I only have 448MB. What have I done
wrong? Help would be greatly appreciated

    My GOD man - Learn to crosspost! This multiple posting is getting old FAST!

    Did you make sure (manuals) that your computer (hardware) could handle that
    much RAM?
    If you did, did you verify the type/speed?
    If you did, did you verify the placement?

    How much RAM does your BIOS/post screen tell you that you have?

    As for your other question about "How to CrossPost" (as well as the ones you
    keep coming back for) -
    might I suggest learning to use Google?
