Kingston RAM incompatible with ABIT AV8 Third Eye?

    Hi, I have Kingston 1GB RAM as a set of two (KVR400X64C3AK2/1G), which
    is currently in my computer, the motherboard being an AV8 Third Eye.
    (Didn't get a choice of a normal AV8. Ripped the guru clock out.)

    The Kingston site does list it as being compatible with the
    motherboard, but the BIOS still only recognises half of it! While 1G
    isn't too bad to run most programs on Windows XP, I'd like to at least
    *see* where I spent my money on.

    I've already flashed the BIOS to the latest (28) and cleared the CMOS
    using the CCMOS jumpers as directed - but it absolutely insists I only
    have 1G of memory.

    Am I better off trying to search for a generic low-density RAM to
    replace my Kingston sticks, or is there a way to make it compatible?

    did you think it was 1gig x 2 ?

    He seems to contradict himself.
    He begins by saying ;

    "Hi, I have Kingston 1GB RAM as a set of two..."

    then he complains about the motherboard;

    "...but it absolutely insists I only have 1G of memory."
