At first it just only restarted, so I'd opted to change the memory. I'm now using a 512Mb PC400 DDRAM. It worked fine but after a month, it started to hang. Just two days ago, it never turned on anymore. I tried removing and putting back all the cables, IDE and power; the peripherals video, modem and memory; and the processor. But still it didn't work. I checked on the capacitors if there is any leaking or busted but couldn't find one. Is there a solution to this?
Power Led Lite? If they don't, then I'm not sure of this.
That DDR SDRAM? PC400? Do you mean PC3200, that's DDR at 400Mhz. If that's the case, the PC3200 may be locked out, or deselected by the system. Why? The system may have found that memory irregular. Try another memory, like PC2700, that's DDR at 333Mhz, that should work in a system rated for PC3200. Check first before trying. Once that memory works, your system should be able to use DDR PC3200 again, I would recommend another memory that what you were using, Different spec from the same Manufacturer or a Different Manufacturer.
Does the CPU fan spin when you press the switch? If it doesnt, short the green wire from the power supply with the black one, If the fan still does not spin, the power supply is bad. If it does, the mother board has a problem.

Most likely the pc400 hynix is incompatible with the mother board, or with the memory you are leaving in place. Try using just the pc400 sticks, if you still get system beeps then you are using incompatible memory. You should go to centon, or other memory manufactures wesbsite and look up what is compatible with the mother board and get that memory for the system. My bet is going to be pc3200 memory.
try to pull out the old 128MB and let the new 512MB memory, to knew that your windows 2000 working properly.. if the 512MB function then its ok... dont put back again the old one... Maybe that 128MB is not compatible with the new 512MB, is 512MB PC400 or not? and also let your windows restore back to its system working properly and your VGA Card reinstall it again.... hope this might help you, good luck!
Your post indicating that you are moving up from SDRAM to DDRAM shows that your motherboard is capable of either type (having both type of slots) and therefore would have been a few years old. Having said this, then your MB would have the very early version/compatibility of DDRAMs where/when 512 then was the highest readily available memory.
As most Taiwan manufacturers, Jetway would be publishing specs that are a bit just over rated in terms of their product performance unlike Asus, ABit, AOpen. Additionally, most have been known to be using the same manual for several versions of the motherboard. A similar looking motherboard can come in several versions such as those with internal video while another is an AGP slot; one versions may or may not have built-in Ethernet port. In the same token, a version may have 2 X SDRAM slots + 2 DDRAM slots or 4 X SDRAMs or 4 X DDRAMs. Again, we are talking of the same model number of the motherboard but different versions/revisions.
2 G would be right for the 4 X memory slots versions (at 4 X 512) but since you have the 2 + 2 (2 SDRAM + 2 DDRAM), maximum would only be 1 Gb (2 X 512).
Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Some MOBO support different type of memory modules like ddr 400, 333,533 and other, if your computer is working fine with that PC400 it only means that your MOBO is compatible with it. Since you're planning to upgrade the memory just get another PC400 because the memory should be the same to work fine.
