Its a memory problem obviously. Try dusting the memory slot and try inserting the memory into the slot a couple of times. If still not working, the memory may be incompatible(rarely, there are brands of boards that doesn't suit to certain brands of memory), or it may be damaged.

Thanks for asking FixYa for help. My name is Jeff and I will be assisting you today. You didn't specify your operating system, which is a critical component. With a 32 bit operating system the total addressable theoretical memory limit is 4 MB. This includes system ram AND video ram. You should be fine with the 256MB card as it is pretty small. So, if you have a 32 bit system, anything over about 3.2 MB total is a waste.
If you are in need of additional help, please let us know.
If you want to upgrade your ram, buy the same memory frequency like your current ddr 256 mb pc3200 memory. You can upgrade your memory up to 4GB and be sure they have all the same frequency to avoid system complications.
first let's determine if the upgrade cause the boot speed.
Disconnect your NEW HDD and/or memory, one by one and see if you get back your fast boot. Then try with your NEW components only !
If you find it works better with new components only, then first connect your OLD HDD only and try.
If you connect both HDDs on one cable, check Jumper settings for both HDDs (Master/Slave).
Also HDD capacity and type is automatically detected by the BIOS and there is no need to put/change those settings manually.
I believe you new RAM is DDR type, too! As written in the manual for the board, your motherboard has two pairs of memory slots, and you can use one or two modules of DDR memory, OR one or two modules of SDRAM memory, but you can NOT put BOTH DDR and SDRAM memory modules.
From Asus tech:
3 184-pin DIMM slots for PC1600/PC2100 DDR SDRAM Supports up to 2GB memory No ECC supportThis is only compatible RAM so make sure your new chip is PC1600 or PC2100. If you mis the 2 it the faster RAM will run at the slower chip speed. Hope this helps.
If your PC boots up successfully and load windows then its mean that RAM is working fine... There is some problem with OS settings.. So at XP booting press F8 for start-up menu and select Last known good configuration... Hope it will work...
You can use only DDR 266Mhz dimms maximum upto 2 GB. i.e. one DIMMS of 266Mhz of 2GB or two of 1GB each. For more details read bellow:
System Memory Features
The D845GBV board provide the following memory features:
Two DIMM sockets supporting 2.5 V (only) 184-pin 200/266 MHz Double Data Rate (DDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only Suspend to RAM
CAUTION: Do not use ECC DIMMs with the D845GBV board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the Desktop Board.
