I have the same problem. The problem is the i430vx chipset. Here is what the Bigelow troubleshooting guide says. "This tends to be a chipset-related problem - the motherboard is probably using a 430VX chipset that (though supporting 128MB RAM) will not support 64MB memory devices. The 430VX supports only the following memory devices: 512Kx32-bit (2MB), 1Mx32-bit (4MB) , 2Mx32-bit (8MB) , 4Mx32-bit (16MB). The layout for a 64MB SIMM is 16Mx32-bit, which isn't in the list above. When you install two 64MB SIMMs, the system will use the 4Mx32-bit specification to calculate the memory, thus displaying 32MB. Unfortunately, this is a limitation of the motherboard, and it cannot be corrected without upgrading the motherboard (or using smaller memory modules)." Hope this helps you out
