    Hi all,
    I think I already know the answer to this, but I'll check...

    I have a PC with a shuttle SN41G2 motherboard and another with an FN51
    mobo, and 2GB of RAM. Neither PC will start with the 1GB stick
    installed on its own; both work fine with 2x512MB sticks installed.
    They both complete the memory check and hang

    So far, so simple. Now comes the weird part....
    - when I install the 1GB stick alongside a 512MB stick, both will
    start. However, they will only recognise 1GB total of RAM. Running a
    memory diagnostic program shows no errors in the RAM.


    My question is - do these motherboards support 1GB sticks of RAM? Was
    it something that was enabled in a BIOS update that perhaps I need to
    download? Because my understanding is that they both do/ should.

    Thanks in advance.
    Nick

    Sorry, that's SN41G2 PC with FN41 mobo and an FS51 mobo. Doh!

    I think you'll find they need to be in pairs.

    That's why you get 1gig when you put the 1GB stick in with the 512GB
    stick, it just detects them as a pair of 512's and give you 1GB total.

    Try putting in 2 stick of 1GB.
