    Did you finish downloading the block chain? – David Schwartz Jul 31 '12 at 7:45

With the Bitcoin.org client, the balance is calculated based on data in the blockchain data files. If those files haven't finished updating, the calculation will not be current.

The way to check on this depends on which version of the Bitcoin.org client you are using. The most recent versions (v0.6.x) will show the status at the bottom. If is says "Synchronizing with network ..." then your balance may not show correctly until it has completed successfully. When it is completed then a green check-mark will show in the bottom right-hand corner of the client.
