The board does support up to 2GB DDR400 RAM (for more info on the board try here).
You might also find MSI's support site helpful (here is link to your specific board that has up to date BIOS and drivers).
As for why your system only sees 512MB of RAM, I am not entirely sure, you could try running 'dxdiag' (just type dxdiag into the 'run' utility), which should give you a more accurate reading of how much RAM you have available. Otherwise, certainly try the BIOS update. If you are still seeing only 512MB afterwards, I would certainly be questioning the reliability the board (if the RAM has tested fine on other systems).
After the update, enter your bios and make sure your onboard modem is enabled. This could be another problem - the modem MUST be enabled in BIOS in order to work.
Additionally, there are drivers available for your specific motherboard model - go to the following site:
These are windows drivers for your motherboard - they work across nearly all windows platforms.
If you do all of those steps, and it still doesn't work, let me know!
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.
