I have an Asus eee pc 1005ha netbook computer. CPU N270 Intel Atom 1.60 GHz processor, 160GB hard drive.

I found the performance unbearably slow, so bad that it was unuseable.

I purchased a 2GB ram chip, Kingston KVR8OOD2S6/2G.
2GB PC2-6400 CL6 200-PIN SODIMM.

These specific product specifications had been recommended on 3 websites as the best choice as a ram upgrade, according to the above specifications.

I installed it without difficullty. However "System" still shows 0.99GB ram; BIOS shows 1024MB, as expected.

I don't understand this discrepency. The computer works, but actually seems to be slower than before. I don' know what I did wrong. I know the Atom processor is obsolete at this time.

Any input on this netbook problem would be appreciated.

Grats.
