That shouldn't matter. That stick of PC3200 will still run and just downclock to PC2700 speed. Did you try putting the 512 stick in ram slot #1 and the other one in #2? Maybe that will help?

If you can get it to work, you're better off with the PC3200 stick than if you had gotten another PC2700 because all new mobo's that use DDR memory now support PC3200, so if you do upgrade in the somewhat near future, you've already got a stick of RAM for the upgrade. If you were to try and stick an old PC2700 stick in a newer board, it would work, but your system RAM would only be running at PC2700 speeds instead of what the optimum that the new mobo can support (PC3200).

it seems that it just clocked down the 3200 and excluded the real 2700

I bet the reason why its not working right is because you've maxed out the banks. eg. my old motherboard would only support one stick of double sided ram, or 2 sticks of single sided ram. i couldn't use one single sided stick and one double sided stick. check to see if the new ram's single or double sided, and if it is double sided, buy a new stick thats single sided. that should work. and get PC 2700.
