hello peeps iv got a Q 4 ya!
well i purchased Crucial 256MB DDR400 PC3200 184-pinn Dimm Unbuffered Non ECC Memory Module on my 648F Neo series MSI-6585 mobo. i already have a 265MB PC2700. when i put the new ram wid my previous in the computer, it comes on perfectly but when i go to check how much ram my computers has it always displays 256MB and iv tried every single combination (2rams 3 slots) still says 256MB. both ram works fine single, and i added a 128MB(PC2100) to both of the 256MB rams and it works (says 384MB) why is this?

It could be a timing issue that you're having between the memory sticks so check and adjust those if necessary or increase the voltage to the memory by 0.1v as that may help.
