Default Possible RAM conflict?

Just took 512MB of corsair xms pc3200 c2 out of my old computer and put it in a motherboard I got from novatech, along with the 512 that came with said motherboard. However, its taking longer to boot windows and is still only detecting 512 in the system menu. I put the corsair in slot 1 of 4 (which the novatech was previously in - this has been subsequently moved to slot 2 of 4)
Does anyone know a reason/cure for this? Is it elemantary (being windows just doesn't see it) or is it not being used.

Thanks for your help in advance.
