In system properties, windows recognizes 1gb of ram. I currently have 2 gb installed with the latest bios on the pt800ce-a

I run the CPU validator and it recognizes my 2 sticks of ram.

Very curious. What does Task Manager show for total and available memory? - See the Performance tab - middle right.

You might also run the free full system scan at PCPitStop and see what it reports.

I'm thinking it might be a motherboard issue.. the system properties is saying theres only 1 gig in there. but in the pre windows boot screen where it shows irq assignments shows ram in the 2 banks

What did Task Manager and PCPitStop say?

Is this the memory you have been running and you just noticed the issue or did you make a recent change? If so, what?

What RAM do you have? Is it a matched pair? On mobo validated list?

Have you tried moving the RAM around to see what it reports? Try each stick in each slot and see if it reports the sticks in each slot.
