Default I just installed RAM and my computer recognises but doesn't use it

I originally had 1 GB of RAM. The motherboard is compatable with only DDR RAM. I have two 512MB DIMM DDR SDRAM sticks originally, and I just installed a 1024MB DIMM DDR DSRAM stick. I right-clicked "My Computer" and it still says 1GB not 2GB. why? Hopw do I configure my system so it can use and read my new stick of RAM?

you may also play around with the bios to see what you can find..
