Hi shinde32, you should know that dual channel memory should be bought as a pair. Your board has two DIMM slots as you mentioned. The board can handle up to 2GB max memory, as you have mentioned. What you do not seem to know is it is required to use the same amount of memory is each slot. See the bottom of page 55 in your manual. (Do you need the manual)? Download at this link;

There is not a bios setting where you can enable or disable memory channels. The bios configures the memory automatically. Intel has a list of memory tested & passed for the D102GGC2 Mb. You can see that list at this next link.
http://www.intel.com/technology/memory/ddr/valid/DDR2_sodimm_results.htm
Bottom line, both DIMM slots should have two 512MB DIMMS or two 1GB DIMM's. (Like this memory);

This is what your search would look like,
"1GB x 2 DDR2 dual channel 533MHz SPD memory".
The Certified "SPD" is important for Intel MB's.

Good luck shinde32!

To the best of my knowledge, if both RAM speeds are the same and compatible with your FSB your BIOS will reconize them and not average their capacity or favor a compatible stick over another. Sorry that I couldn't be of more help. Good luck.

HOW TO FIND RAM CAPACITY OF INTEL D102GGC2


Intel D102GGC2 Motherboard Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
Maximum Memory Capacity: 2048MB
* Currently Installed Memory: 512mb Number of Banks: 2
* Dual Channel Support: Yes
* CPU Manufacturer: GenuineIntel
* Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.
Your MotherBoard Supports up to 2GB of memory.

You have 512mb, you can add 512mb to the empty slot.
, however,It's a good idea to keep them the same if you can.
You can install memory that is: DDR2 PC2-5300 (PC2-5300 is 667Mhz) you can use 1gb memory in each module for best performance and matching pairs since your motherborad supports dual channel.you can use sound card and SATA hard disk for higher disk support

RAM NOT DETECTING


I had the same issue on this board where it came with a Samsung 512 MB 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 DIMM. I put in a 1 GB Kingston with the same specs (533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2) and it would not recongize the Samsung anymore with the system reading as 1 GB of RAM instead of 1.5 GB. Tried every configuration and would only see the Kingston. It would only see the Samsung if I pulled out the Kingston regarless of the slots I use. So, I just bought the exact same make/model of Kingston and it recognized that fine and the system now has 2 GB of memory (max this board allows). And, I had already installed the latest BIOS for this board from Intel before doing all this so wasn't an old BIOS. I'm figuring the board didn't like something about the Samsung memory (speed, module configuration, etc.) that made it not play nice with the Kingston. If interested I bought the DM8400A/1G Kingston modules. And, this board appears not to support dual channel memory. Only has channel A, slots 0 and 1, and I read need two channels to support dual channel (seems obvious). Boards that supports dual channel memory normally have 4 memory slots, two for channel A and two for channel B, then put in matching modules in slot 0 for channel A and B and have dual channel memory access. And if want more ram, then matching modules in slot 1 for channel A and B.
