Question about HP Compaq dx2000 Microtower PC Desktop
I have a very annoying problem. My HP Compaq dx2200 Microtower came with 512MB RAM (256MB X2) and I upgraded RAM to 2GB (1GB X2) Patriot 100% compatible. The problem is that Windows XP AND BIOS Only detected 1GB. The weirdest thing is that it isn't a malfunction of one of the RAM. I installed CPU-Z and it showed me that I have installed X2 512MB RAM. This RAM modules has been tested in another computer and showed 2GB.
Don't ask me to clean the RAM modules o the slots (done)
Don't ask me to try different combinations like, 1 module alone, switch places, etc. (done)
Why my PC is showing only 1GB RAM if the manual says the limit is 2GB? And why it shows me 2 slots but with 512MB each?
PD: Sorry for my English...
Firstly, you have to know that you can upgrade RAM as Double or Half of your pre-installed RAM. For example, like your pre-installed RAM is 256 MB, you can only upgrade RAM of capacity 128 MB or 512 MB. Secondly, check your previous installed RAM's speed that is shown in Ghz. You can only upgrade RAM to its similar speed, otherwise you get slow performance of PC.

TRY TO RESET THE RAM STICK IN THE SLOT AND RESTART.
