    Do I feel embarrassed or what!?!? Sorry for asking such a dumb question . . . Just assumed that if the first stick I looked at was 2 GB, the other one out of the same computer would be too. Sigh . . .
    Lol, don't know how many times I've done similar things!

Try reseating them or one is bad maybe. As you had no way of knowing they worked correctly till put them in a working system, yes this 64bit HP system can handle up to 4GB.
    As you saw, it was the glasses and lighting that needed checking, not the RAM numbers.

    Yup, but I'd already found my mistake by the time you posted. I've done stupider, but I don't remember when.

    You didn't offend me at all. I admitted what I'd done wrong, which opened me up and let y'all in on it. It's great that we can laugh at our own mistakes and even encourage others to laugh at us too. That's what makes this forum so great.

    I have so much respect for you admitting the mistake. So many nowadays think it is a sign of weakness but in my eyes it is just the opposite. None of us are perfect. Would have been very easy for you to act like things just suddenly started working right. Have no doubt some of that goes on here.

    Anyway, once again, I can't count the times I've made similar mistakes. Have a great day!

    Thanks, Popeye. Much appreciated.

    Admitting what we did wrong can help others by alerting them to not "do that". Too, if they see that those of us that are "supposed" to be knowledgeable can do silly stuff, it gives them hope that they can get to guru status too.
