I have two sticks of 512 MB RAM, however one of them isnt working, I dont know if its a bad connection or a BIOS thing or a driver thing. I'm currently running on only 512 MB of RAM which is awful for any kind of gaming :flowers: any help is appreciated, thanks :thumbsup:

What kind of computer do you have, and RAM?

Is your new stick the same as the other?

Is this single channel or dual channel? If it is dual channel be sure that you have the modules in the appropriate slots.

You can also test each module in the first slot one at a time to be sure that they are both working.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
