Default Conflicting Information, Please Help!!!

I have an HP Pavillion a520n

3200+ 2.2 ghz
Asus A7N8V-LA
1 GB Corsair Ram (PC2700 DDR)
160 GB HD
(full specs below)

The only changes I've made are the upgraded RAM and a ATI9600Pro 128MB Vid. card.

***My issue is this.. The HP info states that my pc max RAM = 1GB
ASUS info states 2GB MAX for this board !!!!

Does anyone know wht I need to do to get to 2 gig???

Your mobo is probably specially made for HP... notice the LA at the end.

To get your 2GB to work, you'll most likely have to upgrade your mobo. SInce it is a socket A, it may be hard to find, but if you can find a Asus A7N8V (not LA), you might be able to swap it out with your current mobo and not lose your stuff on your hard drive.
