    Laptop memory modules

    I removed 2 x 512Mb memory modules from my laptop and replaced them with 2 x 1 Gig modules. I sold the old ones on eBay but the seller is now saying that 1 is 512Mb and the other is 256Mb.
    I know they were both 512Mb and still have the receipt to prove it.
    However is it possible that one module has been damaged and is only showing 256?
    I assumed that if a module got damaged it just wouldn't work but am I wrong, could one have lost half its memory?
    I know that they were both okay before they were removed from my laptop and it is obviously possible that the seller is trying to pull a fast one, I just need to know if it's possible to zap half of the module and the other half be okay.

    The most likely scenario is that the buyer's computer's motherboard doesn't support a full 1gig of ram and is therefore only showing part of it.

    Thanks, the buyer has now confirmed that the memory is in fact okay it was his mistake.

    Glad it worked out. eBay disputes can be terrible sometimes.
