If it's Windows 7 32bit it has limits on the amount of ram it can use.
Google it and see.

Just looked it up, 512 is the max supported by this system.

Do you have the latest Bios upgrade?

I installed 2 new banks of 512 MB RAM in my COMPAQ PRESARIO S3000NX. The COMPUTER PROPERTIES SHOW INSTALLED RAM TO BE 480 MB ( Not 1GB as I expected) Why is this happening? George McGeachie...


Your bios may need to be flashed so your motherboard with recognize the ram. It also may be fixed by adjusting the speed of the ram in your bios settings. Be carefull and read about doing both of these procedured in your mainboard manual( should be able to get a manual from the compaq site if you do not have one).You can mess up your computer real good if things are set or flashed wrong. Good Luck

RAM Recognition 835GM PC Desktop


the memory is dual channel, so you have to use matched memory for it to work 1gig in each slot if possible, check the 1 gigs and 512's to see if they run at the same bus speed, if they are not matched there is your problem try a gig and a 512 in slot 0 to see if it picks the memory up, also there is sometimes an option in the bios to dissable dual mode

Memory upgrade problems


Hmm if the pc takes DDR Ram , it should deffently take 512 sticks, have u tried booting the computer with just the one 512 stick ? or try putting the 256 stick in and 1 x 512 stick , test it that way with both sticks , some older computers there is a bios setting for upgrading to higher amount of memory, but in your case with DDR ram i dont think so , i mean it may be worth a shot going into bio's and load optimized defaults , press f10 to save settings, try one stick at a time after that , if still no go , there is a jumper pin on the mother board that u can move over a slot which will restet the bios, if u dont know this jumper pin or where it is, just remove the round battery on the motherboard for 30 seconds , then put it back in , try your new ram then , u will be asked to save settings on boot up , if it still dosent work the ram is either faulty or incompatible, alot of the time with Dell , HP /Compaq desktops there fussy with the type of ram they take, but if u ordered from dell it should have worked !! whats the brand name of the ram u have is it hynix? /HP this brand of ram has alot of issues with compatibility,
