Default My old ass computer

OK so I have this old computer that has a celeron 1.3GHz and it has 768 mb ram, but for some reason it only reads 512. Anyone know how I can get it to read the other 256? If it's something that can't be fixed then whatever because it's just an old computer that I use for CS:S and the other 256 would be nice to have working.

I'd like to point out, that the extra ram won't help CS:S in this case.
Your cpu is without doubt the bottleneck.

I'm surprised it can even play CS:S. You don't use the "New build" rig in your sig for gaming lol?

ONBOARD GRAPHICS SHARED MEMORY! Do you have a GPU built into your motherboard or do you use a graphics card plugged into the motherboard?

Yeah well...256MB, THAT much?

Can you give us more specs than what's the speeds and such? Like...a motherboard model?

Read my sig, I have an AGP card

Also your sig is a little bit over 5 lines

It's some intel motherboard, (yes made by intel) Well IDK the chipset is a i815 from 2001, socket 370, atx form, got agp, pci, sdram. 3 slots ram, I have 3 256MB SdRam sticks in there but it only picks up 512, in bios, cpu-z, system properties, et cetera.

Has it always just picked up 512? or did it just start?

It never picked the other one up... it did on a different OS. I tried switching them around too, it seems to only want to read 512
