I have windows 98se 1gig of ddr memory but it only reads i have 512Mb memory. I heard from a friend that windows 98 can't go over 512Mb and that I would have to install my windows 2000 in order to run all the memory. Is this true.:eek:

what on earth are you running on win98 that you need a Gig of memory? Not a knock, just curious.

im not sure, but i had a similar problem but i was running windows me, it might be that the ddr might not be compatible with your motherboard

I'd check to see if the BIOS detects ALL your ram too.
I've heard (but can't confirm with any certainty) that Win98 can see that amount of ram, it just doesn't use it efficiently.

that's the same thing I was thinking..
have you ever had it running? with 1 gig..or did you just put it in and it didn't work in the 1st place?

No, I think that it is just windows or sumthing because I already checked my BIOS and it says there is 1 gig ddr memory and my motherboard is for ddr memory so I really think that it is just win98 and that i should just inastall win 2000 so that it will read it. But thanx for all ur help.:cool:
