Does your ram have any stickers or markings on it ?, do you have any model #s handy for it ?
Some ram can't be used in pairs (usually the case with "house brands" & cheaper ram)
How big is each stick ? (MB) What kind of motherboard are you using ?

I guess I should ask what the problem is in the first place as well :P are you placing the ram in and not seeing an increase in the POST ?

As for capacity of your HDD, The only thing I can think of is to as if your sure you were looking at total capacity and not available space. Even then a 25Gig increase would have required ALOT of things getting deleted.
