It isn't recognizing one of the 512 sticks. Take one out a time and see if anything changes. One of the sticks could be bad. Are you sure you aren't having dual channel conflicting issues?

Default ok

OK try downloading a cpu id program it will tell you about everything you have in your comp so see if it says only 768 mb of ram too. if it does say 1280mb the real amount then everything is fine and all sticks are working but if it says 768mb too then you probaly did something wrong while installing it cheack it again to make sure it is in good or something is broken or that it is compatible with the motherboard. oh yeah here is a link to download the cpu id i sed just clcik on download then install it and wen u open it click on memeory and it well tell you your specs.

just click on a spot to download it from then it will pop up and do the usual download box ok let me know if you get anything new
