Question about ASUS P5VD2-MX SE Motherboard
Some time ogo I configured a PC with the ASUS P5VD2-MX SE Motherboard with 2GB RAM (2 x 1GB Kingston 533MHz DDR2 DIMMS). Today I changed the RAM and installed 4GB with 2 x 2GB Kingston 533MHz DDR2 DIMMS. The BIOS recognizes only 2500MB RAM. I tried each DIMM individually, and they're OK. I also installed the latest BIOS update for this Motherboard (versión 0701), but the problem remains.
Does anybody know how to solve this issue?
Yes this board only holds 2 gb max of ram, i did get mine to recognize 3gb of ram one day when fooling around with two 2gb ddr2 667 mhz sticks but when i took them out it never did it again.

Actually you are doing better than you think, According to your MB specs it is only supposed to hold a max of 2GB (1GB per slot). The updated BIOS may be allowing for the additional 500MB.
If you would like to verify, here is a link to the manual for your MB:
