Is your memory not fully recognized? (Intel VX chipset Memory recognition)

Running XP SP2 on a VIA P4M80-M4 Mainboard, Socket 478, DDR400 with two (2) DDR Dimm modules and Intel Celeron CPU 2.40GHz.

When I install two 1GB PC3200 DDR 400MHz cards, system won't load XP. BIOS seem to run successfully but Windows won't boot. Windows Startup screen restarts 3 times then just black screen.

Everything works well with a 1GB card in DIMM1 and a 256MB card in DIMM2, but only running on 768MB total physical memory. I assume 512MB on DIMM1 and 256MB on DIMM2.

Manual states total memory size max is 2GB, 1GB x 2.
Total Virtual Memory in my System Info Summary states 2.0GB.
But only 1.96MB Available Virtual Memory. Any way to ramp this up?

BIOS Version/Date Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG, 6/9/2007
SMBIOS Version 2.3

It should work right?

Any ideas why it doesn't??
