Ram running at incorrect speed.

I have one 1G stick and one 512M stick, so a total of 1512M. There is nothing wrong with the ram at all, it's compatable with the motherboard.
http://www.valueram.com/config/ModelsInfo.asp?sysID=16910&OEM=ASU&submit1=Search In the BIOS it recognises the full 1512M but in the memory test at the startup, it only reads 256M.
I've updated the BIOS but it is still the same outcome.
Is there anything i need to do in the BIOS?
I have a Kingston 1Gb 333MHz DDR Non-ECC CL2.5 PC2700 184-PIN DIMM (KVR333X64C25/1G)

What does this have to do with memory speed?

I have never seen a BIOS that shows you the amount of RAM installed. This is not a user built PC, is it?

Have you tried disabeling the Quickboot option in the BIOS?

Is all the RAM detected by Windows?
