Hi, I have a dv9000 that came with 2 512 memory modules (2 slots on the board) so I bought 2 1gig modules and swapped them both out.

Vista still only see 1gig of ram. I tried getting into the bios to look around but it looks like a stripped down bios for dummies.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I think the first question would be is can the DV9000 actually support 2GB of RAM?

Check your owner's manual.

All current HP's should support at the very least 2gb if not 4. Try re-seating the memory, if that doesn't work run memtest.

Yea, the older dv9000t's support up to 2 GB with the newer Santa Clara versions supporting up to 4 GB.

If you tried putting a 1GB stick in the first bank and then a 512 in the other, would your PC at least read 1.5GB? I'm sure that's better than one whole GB, especially if the BIOS can't recognize it. My next concern: was the BIOS updated to its latest version? Perhaps that might help a little?
