Does your computer have shared video memory? If so some of that new RAM could go there...but that seems like too much.

Post more complete System specs please and a GENUINE CERTIFIED GEEK will be arround shortly to help.

Doesn't matter what slot it goes it, but trying without the 256mb would be a good idea.
Please click here and load everest.
Then please run it and click motherboard and then motherboard(a different one that'll apper below the inital motherboard) again, please copy and paste your motherboards name that'll appear on the right hand side of the program.
Afterwards, click on memory and tell me how much total physical memory you have.
Thanx
James
