that's odd. it should support 2 GB of RAM.. just like any other netbook.
It should also be correctly in place sense it only has 1 RAM port and you are able to boot up.

Try download CPU-Z and check what that says about your RAM. You should have 2GB running.

If the ram wasn't correctly in place would it still be working like it does?

No. it simply would not boot. (boot = start up)

And you would be hearing very annoying sounds meaning no ram is detected or that there is something wrong with the ram, Did you buy this ram?

that could be it. it should say on the RAM how much capacity it has.
If it says 2 GB. then try download CPU-Z and check.
