I've got two sticks of 512Mb of ram in my system and upon bootup, it sometimes only detects 512Mb and other times it detects both and runs fine. I have to acknowledge it by pressing F1 as the computer keeps thinking it's not there and then it is!?!? do i need to update my motherboard drivers? or is it the stick that might be not connecting properly?
It works fine when it wants to.

The first advice is usually to
- remove both sticks. Don't break them. If you haven't done it before, read the instructions.
- ensure that you have the correct two sockets, if there are more then two
- reseat the two sticks and try again

2 sticks of 512 MB each? How old is this machine? 1GB is pretty small.
