How many RAM slots on the mobo and which ones are being
used? If you have 4 slots put the RAM in #1 and #3.

occupied according to the manual with slot 1 as double and slot two as a
single with reference to the ram chips I have installed , Heres one too add

I'm sorry but this is unclear to me!! Can you explain?
slot 1 as double and slot two as a single with reference to the ram chips

Also, there must be something wrong with RAM!!
What does BIOS ram count show?

Also, Msinfo32 shows:
Total Physical Memory 1,024.00 MB
Available Physical Memory 41.41 MB
What are you running to have only 41.1 mb available?

Also, what does it show for Total and available in Task Manager?

Maybe test ram with memtest86!!
