Question about Intel Motherboard
I have installed two pairs of Kingston kit memory sticks on my P4P800E-deluxe (2x1GB and 2x512GB) but the computer only shows 1.5GB. I have tried all types of different arrangements in the memory channels, but nothing works. Should I be changing something in the BIOS?
Any help you can give would be highly appreciated.
AGP Memory hole, in the BIOS setup, was the cause of "lost" of my 128Mbytes of memory.

I'm not totally sure whether this would make that big of a difference or not, but the ASUS QVL for that motherboard does not list both those particular memory modules (Kingston 1GB) as being supported for double dual channels, only for single dual, or for single channels only and there is some note in the memory specifications and setup configuration about not reading all the memory due to some bridge or another, but still optimizing all the memory.
You might want to ask ASUS about it.

Tips for a great answer:
For dual-channel memory configuration (2), you may:
• install identical DIMMs in all four sockets OR
• install an identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (yellow
sockets) and another identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and
DIMM_B2 (black sockets)
* Always use identical DDR2 DIMM pairs for dual-channel model. For
optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.
