Asus P2B reporting odd memory values

Howdy y'all - anyonce help a country dude figure out why his Asus P2B with 3 256MB sticks of PC133 ram are not being read correctly. AGP video is Matrox G200, OS is XP Pro.
BIOS shows that I only have 448 MB intalled. Switching the order of the DIMMS in the slot even shows different numbers... AIDA32, a diagnostic program shows the actual memory present but Norton System works says there is an error in memory module 1. The BIOS is the latest version.

  1. 1. You could have bad memory.

    2. You could have shared memory with onboard/integrated video card?

    when you see smoke is that a good sign?
  2. It sounds like you have a bad module. Also, for your board to support 256MB, the module has to have 16-chips, due to a density limit.
