Are you certain that your motherboard supports 256MB on a single module?

Look in the mobo manual if you have it or go to manufacturers website & check specs.

Whether this is even an issue can be determined from the system specs - ie if you have an athlon or a P4 for example, then it will support 256MB without a doubt. If you have a P2 or early P3, then you need to check

Your motherboard may not be compatible with the type of ram you're using, I've had the same problem but when I changed the memory for double sided it worked fine, see if you can change the ram for double sided if it's only single sided
