Hi mojaja, for starters you can not run both, DDR2 667MHz & DDR2 533Mhz at the same time. (You'll need to pick one).
Dual channel memory is usually bought in pairs. If you run dual channel memory & you do not buy in pairs it will not run in dual channel. (So you need to match the 1GB 667 with a second matching 1GB 667 DIMM). Or the same for 533 (If its dual channel).
See page 8 & read page 9 in your manual.
There is nothing to turn on. The bios list the memory at boot up.
You can catch your memory being listed at boot up. You'll have to watch closely because it will go by quickly!
Here is a link that explains dual channel memory:

Why does memory upgrade for biostar k8m800-mam2 motherboard cause memory error beeps?


I would verify that the memory you're using is actually working properly.
Try to boot to the new stick and see if it works.
If not, it doesn't work.
If it does, you may need to replace the original stick with the same stick that you are trying to use now.
Use this site as a guide.
