Windows system shows wrong amount of RAM

eee-pcmemorynetbookwindows

I just got an ASUS Eee PC 1005HA and immediately upgraded it to 2 GB of RAM. However, when I open up the Windows System Dialog, it says there is only .99 GB of RAM. CPU-Z sees the whole 2 GB though. What's going on here?

The BIOS also reports the correct amount of memory in the system.

Go into the BIOS and save the changes - only then will Windows report the correct amount of RAM.
