Default Issues with HP and Memory!

Well, I purchased two identical sticks of memory each 256mb, my Computer says I only have 256 in...soooooo, I decided to check around. The first solution I found was to check if it was not seated right, well that didn't apply I checked and they both were fine. Then I decided to check if one was defective, nope neither are defective. So lastly I thought maybe it is the slot that is disabled or defective, nope both work perfectly. So my question is, does anyone know any solution to this?

HP Pavilion 304n, is my computer brand.

I checked the specs for your system & looks like you can use a max of 512MB of RAM (2x256MB) PC100 or PC133.

If both modules work on their own & both slots have been tested, & the 2 sticks really are identical, then I can't see any obvious reason for it to recognise only 256MB.

Have you run the Boot time diagnostic in the BIOS, with both modules in place?
If so, what were the results?
