Default Dell Mini 10v Hackintosh recognising 2GB RAM as 1GB - 07-31-2010, 11:44 AM

I have a Dell Mini 10v Hackintoshed, 1GB RAM. It was on 10.6.2, I upgraded to 10.6.4 and it all screwed up. I erased the hard drive by removing it and connecting to my Mac. While I had the machine open, I upgraded the RAM chip to 2GB.

I reinstalled OS X 10.6, everything now works fine, but it still says 1GB RAM everywhere; About This Mac, System Profiler, and even in Dell Bios when I press F2.

It seems a bit faster so could it be working but not displaying correctly?

What have I done wrong here?!

What does the BIOS say? My guess is that it will also say 1GB suggesting that your 2GB stick isn't 2GB.
