I just got a new 512 MB memory card and I put it in the second/extra slot on the bottom of my laptop (the "regular"/main slot is under my keyboard, as you all probably already know), and I think it's in right and everything, but when I turned my computer back on and started up the System Monitor, the numbers re: memory are no different than they were before (0.5GB memory, 1.5 GB swap).

Is there something I'm supposed to do to get my laptop to "find out" it has a new stick of memory in it? (and/or to configure the new memory, or something else like that?)

thank you in advance for any help/advice anyone can offer!
