Asus Eee PC 1000H – 2GB Memory Not Registering

Asus Eee PC 1000H – Memory Upgrade Problem

After installing the 2 GB memory in the Asus Eee PC 1000H, I booted it up to discover that the system is only registering 1 GB.  This was very discouraging considering this was an easy upgrade.  The first thing I suspected was a faulty stick of memory. But after searching online, I found my answer.

I restarted the system.

As soon as the “Windows is now shutting screen” goes away, start pressing F2 rapidly and repeatedly until you access the BIOS.  If you booted into Windows, you weren’t quick enough and need to start over.

As soon as you get into the BIOS, look at the System Memory to confirm that the BIOS is registering 2 GB of memory.  If it does, you done, exit out, and boot into XP.

If you are still showing 1 GB, you have a problem with the memory module or the computer.
