iMac Ram maximum?

This is an interesting question about my mac (its a MA710LL).  Currently, I have 2 and 1/2 gigs of ram in it, but supposedly this model can only handle 2 gigs.  It has the appearance that it is only using 2 of the 2 1/2 gigs, and that it can "sense" that there is some more, but is there a way to make it use the other 1/2?  Thanks in advance.

No... No it's not an interesting question. Good to know you think it's an interesting question though.

The system can only use 2GB of RAM. It's a limitation of the chip set. There is nothing you can do to get the system to use the extra 512Mb you put into it.
