Memory Upgrade not shown in 'System' or Bios

Hi all, I have a Medion Akoya desktop with a MS-7318 motherboard (Via Chipset), Intel core2 duo E6400 CPU and 1gb of DDR2 pc2 5300 RAM. I have just added another 1gb of the same from Crucial, as the mobo will take upto 2gb. On startup everything is fine except System and Bios say there is only 1gb of RAM but if I run CPU-Z jt says there is 2gb. Any help please. Regards Bob.

Hi Jock1e, I right clicked on my computer and it says 1Gb of Ram, anything else I can do? Regards Bob.

Hi Jock1e, I will try re-inserting as you describe and come back, it might be a while as this is the computer I am using. Regards, Bob.

Hi Jock1e, It's been a while since I've done an upgrade. One of the sticks hadn't clipped properly, all sorted now though. Thanks for your help! Regards, Bob.
