Added Memory

I just added 265meg of ram to max out the mb at 512meg. The BIOS sees the addition and memory self test is good, but in System properties/General it only shows 200meg. Is this just a graphics thing or is there a problem with XP seeing the new memory??
TIA

The bios checks out fine. I will swap the sticks and see if that makes any difference.
Thanks for your reply!

Found the answer!

After searching and a little thinking/luck, I found the reason XP would not see all 512 meg of ram. In control panel/performance and maintenance/system/advanced/startup and recovery there was a line under default operating system including "maxmem=200". Just edited it to 512 and all is well now. Hope this might help others.
Regards,
MD

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
