Sorry i can't really help you with this, but just want to let you know that lots of people seem to be having problems with their gpu's after downgrading from vista. Do you notice any lag in games when playing in xp compared to vista? If you don't then maybe the control panel just displays 512mb total memory, but in reality you have 1024mb of total memory.
