    Your motherboard probably doesn't either support that much RAM or RAM of that timing. You can confirm this by referring to yor motherboard manual online. It may be possible to flash your bios to detect more RAM but unlikely.

    your motherboard may be too old to understand more than 64mb per side. a BIOS update may allow you to work around this. what motherboard model is it ?

    It's actually more likely bad RAM.... u can try a BIOS update, but if the board is new enough to support DDR, the 64mb per side limit most likely won't be there....

    There's a thread under applications for software for testing RAM
