Hi guys and Happy New Year to all, not been on here for ages!

Can somebody help me with my foxconn mobo, I bought it cheap with no manual backplate etc!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186120

So I had 2 x 256mb ddr2 5300 one sided ram and put them in the board and started up the comp they work but only show up as 256mb not 512mb?

I have tried and tried to get accurate specs on what ram the mobo supports but sorry Foxconn are shocking for customer service! And the only info that google can provide is the board supports 533/667/800mhz ddr2 and 5300/6400!

Does anyone know if OCZ 1gb PC2-4200 533mhz will work in this board, since it supports 5300 and 6400?

Would greatly appreciate any help as I wont be holding out on foxconn getting back to me. Thanks in advance!

Try the ram sticks individually in each slot. If at any time the system dont boot then you may have a faulty RAM Slot providing the RAM is the correct RAM.

Most likely what is happening is that your onboard graphics card is taking the extra 256 resources. Download cpu-z it should tell you how much ram you actually have installed.
