Motherboard -KT880 Dragon 2

BIOS -K880-4aa1


RAM -Corsair TWINX1024-3200C2PT

Video -ATI Radeon 8500 All-in-Wonder

Power -U.S. 120v/125v 400 Watts (Thermaltake X series case)

Other -Yamaha DVD-RW/CD-RW, 2 * WD 74GB Raptor hard drive, 1.44 FDD

OpSys -Windows XP-SP1 + updates


The Corsair memory is advertised as a "matched pair" of CAS-2 DDR. SOYO's web site indicates that the Dragon 2 supports this memory. Corsair's web site recommends this memory for the Dragon 2. The MB only sees them as 512MB. Both DIMM’s must be installed or the BIOS beeps a memory error. Total RAM shown by the MoBo and Windows is only 512 MB, not 1GB as it should be. Is it a defect issue or compatibility issue? I have no way to tell without spending a lot of money on parts that I can't afford.
