    I thought that the maximum memory for this board was 768mb and the max
    individual stick 256mb...?

    As for why it identifies your 512mb stick as a 128mb I am sure someone with
    greater knowledge will help you.

    Could it be something to do with single / double sided memory and only one
    type can be used..? I remember that this caused an issue for my friend when
    his 256mb was identified as a 128mb.

    256MB is the max supported per module. The BX also needs 'low density'
    (double sided) 256MB modules.....most modern 256MB modules are high density
    and would only be recognised as 128MB.

  5. Intel 440BX chipset motherboards can't see the entire capacity of 512MB
    sticks, period.

    These boards can use a maximum of 128MB per bank (i.e. per side). The only
    solution is to use a pair of quality double-sided 256MB sticks.
