Jetway MoBo: 2 x 1GB Samsung PC2100 appearing as just 1GB (2 X512MB)
Your post indicating that you are moving up from SDRAM to DDRAM shows that your motherboard is capable of either type (having both type of slots) and therefore would have been a few years old. Having said this, then your MB would have the very early version/compatibility of DDRAMs where/when 512 then was the highest readily available memory.
As most Taiwan manufacturers, Jetway would be publishing specs that are a bit just over rated in terms of their product performance unlike Asus, ABit, AOpen. Additionally, most have been known to be using the same manual for several versions of the motherboard. A similar looking motherboard can come in several versions such as those with internal video while another is an AGP slot; one versions may or may not have built-in Ethernet port. In the same token, a version may have 2 X SDRAM slots + 2 DDRAM slots or 4 X SDRAMs or 4 X DDRAMs. Again, we are talking of the same model number of the motherboard but different versions/revisions.
2 G would be right for the 4 X memory slots versions (at 4 X 512) but since you have the 2 + 2 (2 SDRAM + 2 DDRAM), maximum would only be 1 Gb (2 X 512).
Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
