Question Some of the installed RAM is not seen by my Toshiba Satellite P105 ?

On a Toshiba Satellite P105-6014, BIOS v. 4.0, running Windows XP Media Edition, I upgraded the RAM from the standard 1 GB (2x512MB) to 4GB (2 new 2GB Crucial DDR2 PC2-64 SODIMMs ).

The POST reports 3068M System RAM. The Windows System Properties reports 2.99 GB of RAM.

My first thought was that part of a memory module was bad, but either module installed alone - with the other socket empty - shows 2GB of RAM in both POST and Properties. My next was that the BIOS didn't support 4GB, but it does I have removed, reinserted, and swapped the memory modules with no effect.

Any suggestions?
