HAve a look at and enter your mobo details; it will tell you the max you can have.

It may be that you need a bios update to use more than 512mb.

think i see the problem it needs to be one strip rather then two double banks strips
Important information about your system
Supports 2 banks of DDR 400 (PC3200). Either two single banked modules or a single double banked DDR 400 module can be installed to comprise the two banks of memory.

That's a little unfortunate if it turns out to be the case.

msi says this

Main Memory
• Supports up to six memory banks using three 184-pin DDR SDRAMs.
• Supports up to 3GB memory size.
• Supports DDR200/266/333/400* memory. *DDR 400 memory support by MSI certified module only
Note: DDR400 (PC3200) Max. up to 2 Memory DIMM slots with 4 memory banks only

which to me says its ok
