    sounds like your computer isn't "seeing" both sticks of RAM, only one of them. turn off the computer and reseat them. see what happens.

    ok... check the RAM. make sure it is seated correctly. you can check system profiler just to make sure. but i'm suspecting it will only recognizing one of them.

    right. so it is only seeing one stick of RAM. remove them. put them back in. see if that solves the problem.
