Question Ram Problems

I have just purchased two pc133mhz sdram 512mb
my computer has two slots and can only have a maximum
of 1gb ram in total, i tried both 512mb together and cannot get
it to boot up properly but if i use my 256mb and my
new 512mb giving it 768mb it works.
My question is this, the boards maximum capacity is
1gb surely there must be a way to achieve this?

depends on ur motherboard brand, usually go to the website of your motherboard brand, and check for "downloads" "update BIOS"
