Welcome to G2G, vinnie138

There's 2 possible reasons for your problem :

1. Your system doesn't support more than 128MB on a single ram module OR

2. your system doesn't support double sided modules

Have a look at the 256MB module & see if it has chips on both sides. If it does then it's possible that you can only use single sided modules.
