remove one stick, see if its acting in DDR mode or somthing (to see if it is seeing ONE stick or both but at lesser values.)

if it is in DDR mode, you wil have to put the ram in dimm1 and dimm3 to make it work

I took one out and then it said i had 256 ddr ram. I will try what you said but the other 2 ram slots are for dual ram. Tried it and nothing werid really.

You have the msi neo 2 dont you?

Make sure your bios is set to default settings before using live update. Also after doing the latest bios update you may find one of your ps2 ports dosent work, well thats what happened to me anyway. :roll:
