I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop that's running Windows Vista Home Basic 32 bit. The system came with 512MB of Ram from the factory. I recently purchased 2GB (two 1GB sticks) from Cruicial but when I install the memory it is only recognized in the Bios. Windows Vista still shows that it has 512MB. Can someone explain why this is happening? Isn't the memory capitable being that it's recognized in the Bios? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
