Default Ram Not Registering

i put 2gb of ram in this computer one of them i put in the wrong spot and it shows up as 2gb is there on cpuz but not on system. so it said it was 1gb in teh system icon and then next day it was 896mb...is this because the ram is fraged (also i don't know how to defrag ram) or did some of the memory in it burn up?

Gcard:XFX Geforce GeForce 7900 GT EXTREME (520MHz)
Ram:PNY OPTIMA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR
cpu:AMD Athlon 64 3700 2.2ghz oc to 2.4ghz
mobo:BIOSTAR TForce6100
please don\'t ***** about how laggy you are on FEAR i beat the game on 640x480 at 20fps!! old computer(pci radeon 9250)

so please save your computer hardship about framerates unless your have a card lower than this

my suggestions:

1) check your memory and motherboard physically for burn marks

2) bring your memory and try on another system

3) run memtest

not sure what do you mean by frag or defrag a memory, never heard it before.

what what do you mean put it on the wrong spot? or slot?
