I have 2 512 cards installed and the computer only shows that I have only 512 installed and it should be 1 gig?? What would be the cause of this?

There could be many reasons,
1 Either the RAM slot is not working
2 or the RAM card(s) are not OK
3 or the RAMs are not compatable(not of the same specs)

1 Remove both the RAM cards, clean the metal joints in both the RAMs and the RAM slots
2 Remove power, remove all power source, remove power cables including all the battery
3 Keep presssing the power switch ON for a few mins, Do....ON... OFF, ON... OFF WITHOUT any POWER
4 Replace battery, power adaptor, power cables etc
5 Insert one of the RAMs in 1st RAM slot, power on, check if it's OK, Switch OFF, remove the RAM
6 Do the above process for the other RAM, now check if that works, use the same RAM slot
7 Now do the above two steps for the 2nd RAM slot

It will give you a rough idea of where is the issue.....either RAMs are not OK or the slots have issues or there is a compatibility issue among the RAM cards.....

Pls reply back and leave a feedback

Installion of Memory

Hi Daisy,
You need to remove one of the old RAMs but would like to remind you that different brand of rams with different type of memory would cause a conflict in the future. better remove both your OLD RAM and replace only that new 1GB ram, unless one of your old rams is a 1Gb also with the same brand.

let me know what you did. :)
