Could be faulty memory socket(s) on the motherboard, faulty dimm,
incompatible memory or maybe the bios/motherboard doesn't support more than
512Mb? ... is there a bios upgrade available for the board? if there is try
that.
Try installing the memory separately, i.e. either 1x256Mb at a time or even
2x256Mb and see if it still shows up the correct amount (easy way to check
if it's a faulty socket or dimm)
