I don't know if this problem was raised before, yet anyways, I have 2 pcs of Kingston KVR / 1GB / DDR400 rams and put it on my ECS P4m800Pro-M motherboard. Yet the system can only see 1GB. I remove 1 ram and the system can only see 512KB.
I don't know what to do anymore. I am planning to update my bios but from the forums that i read, changing bios also pose problems.
I have the same problem on the same motherboard, it has been suggested by the ram manufacturer that chip density on the ram is too high, i am sending back the ram & having it replaced with ram of the same size but twice the no. of chips on each module

Re: RAM DIVIDED INTO HALF
It sometimes happen that for some Motherboard or in any computer hardware that has a factory defect. Pheriperals and other clip on hardware much probably does not work, or maybe it works but there's much more possibilty to have / make problem.
Updating the BIOS i think it may not help, try to install the other ram you been using before and if its read the same capacity then its probably your 2KVR has the problem.

look at the "green" slots in the picture of the motherboard.
That's where the RAM goes -- note that the RAM has a "notch" that is *NOT* in the "centre" of the stick; so, the RAM only fits *ONE* way into the slot.
On that web-page, it says:
• Supports six memory banks using three 184-pin DDR SDRAMs. • Supports up to 3GB memory size. • Supports DDR400/DDR333/DDR266/DDR200 SDRAM Note: PC3200 (DDR400) maximum 4 banks only.
So, if you buy DDR400 RAM, the maximum is 2GB (2 sticks @ 1GB/stick); if you buy DDR33 RAM, the maximum is 3GB (3 sticks @ 1GB/stick).
You have to verify the in the motherboard book if the brand name or vendor of your merory stick is compatible with your computer's motherboard, there all written : Kingston, Samsung, micron etc... Check all details if meets your motherboard's model requirements and make the change if necessary.
If all details are correct, check in your motherboard's manual if there is a special configuration to respect (in withc bank you should place your memory stick and witch order etc)
It seems like you have done everything right but im not 100% sure that your memory is correct. read through the description here carefully and you will see that this memory comes in two different packages. One of them is the 400 (the ones you bought) and another in the 333 flavor. I am hoping they did not make a mistake and gave you the wrong ones. Look directly at the memory and make sure. I am also including the system manual for your computer. Hope this helps.
Kingston's ValueRAM KVR400/1GR is a 128M x 64-bit (1GB) DDR400 CL3 SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM) memory module. The components on the module include sixteen 64M x 8-bit (16M x 8-bit x 4 Bank) DDR333 SDRAM in TSOP packages. This 184-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers and requires +2.6V. The product is shipped in retail packaging and includes installation instructions.
More people should complain with Asus support. Checking Asus forums, you'll find there's an obvious problem with a PCI-E video addon + 2 used memory slots. In my case, I had 2Gb (1 + 1), mb with bios version 1104, and it worked fine; when I installed a new PCI-E card, the system was very... very sluggish. Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.
Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...
