you could try it without the smaller stick of ram,unfortunately i think the one you have purchase may be incompatable as there is alot more to matching the ram than speed.
try the scan at crucial to match up correctly

It may well be Raven is right. Theres more to memory that just speed theres things like Latency etc. Look at Crucial and do their scan as he suggested click here

256mb and try the machine, as *Raven*.

If the bios has a * rest the configuration * setting, enable it. It will re-read all the components on start up. It will refresh the data about the memory. It's like resetting the bios.

Whats the motherboards make and model number?

You will find it under the boot heading, just under plug and play O/S.

set it to yes. save settings and exit.

it will automatically go back to no AFTER the next boot.

Both sticks of ram are ddr, aren't they? one's not sdram is it?

restart the computer and keep tapping the delete key on the keyboard.

You should then see a screen like this click here the bios screen.

Scroll across the top to boot click here scroll down to reset configuration data and change the setting to yes.

press the F10 key to save and exit.

the computer will reboot and re-write the bios's configuration.
