Hp Compaq dx2200 MT RAM Problems

Hi!

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?

Help Please!

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.

Upgrade ram on HP LAPTOP COMPAQ NX9010


Ok, so you just got more Hard disk space, or a new bigger Hard disk. Of course you need t upgrade the Ram memory. This computer supports Ram memory up to 1 Gb with a max frequency of 266Mhz. You probably have 256Mb or 512Mb of Ram Memory. You can go to any computer store and get it upgraded. It shouldn't be expensive. But don't forget :

Use this tyoe of RAM: DDR SDRAM (266 MHz), Upgradeable to 1GB

By the way, even after the upgrade, I advise you to run a Defrag of your Hard Disk and clean all your temp files.
There is a free and easy software to clean all temp and internet temp files: Ccleaner.
