Test the second stick of memory in the first slot. Confirm that the second stick is not a problem. If it works, then you have a bad slot on the motherboard. Oh, and one other thing--make sure the memory stick speeds are compatible. Match the memory speeds where possible. Post back your findings.
memory is a tricky thing you have to make sure that the meory is compatable with your mobo(for instance) my laptop is a acer aspire 3000 it takes pc2700 ddr memory that runs at 333 mhrtz i just upgraded from a 128 and 512 set to 2 gig im running xp home,also xp will only recognizes 2 gig max unless it the 64 bit ver which then will go up to 4 gig and up also vista as well will run up to 4 gig and up usually 64bit ver will recognize 4 or more gig however if you need soem more help id need make model of laptop your running as swell as which ver of windows.happy hunting-z
Your not alone in this type of problem. When it comes to computer (laptop especially) they usually have a "Max allowed ram" most times its listed in the back of the manual in small print. Its a way to keep people buying new computers (if your into the conspiracy theories) Chances are even a bios upgrade would not fix your problem. Mostly BIOS upgrades add support for new boot options, plug and play support, and fixes to bugs in older versions.
You can check aspires/acers website for updates www.acer.com If they have an update it will comes with documentation as to what the update does.
You Can Actually Upgrade This To 2 Gig Memory.
Each Slot Will Take 1 A Gig Strip.
I,d suggest Buying another 256 mb Strip, To Put Into Slot 2.
Or Buy a 512mb ( Half Gig ) Which Will Give you 750mb With your Existing Strip Already In There. ** Recommend 1 Gigabyte Max** 2 gig of Ram in This Baby Would Probably Start Glowing.
You Can Buy DDR/266/333 In 256/512/1 Gig Strips. These Are Commonly Known As SD-RAM-Modules.
