Advent 7201 Notebook RAM and HD??

I have an Advent 7201 Notebook that has 1gb of ram at the moment and an 80gb hard drive... my partner just bought me another 1gb strip of ram and a new 250gb hard drive. When he put the RAM in, the laptop only recognized one of the two strips. The notebook does have a 2gb limit on the ram, but that's all we're trying to put in. why is it not recognizing the two strips?

Also, it says in the manual for the laptop that there is a 100gb limit on the hard drive... will the new 250gb hard drive not work?
