Presario 5000 Series might be able to support up to 1536 MB if it has 3 slots (3 banks of 1).
Check your main board specs before upgrading.
In regards to the anti-static wrist band, you do not needed; just make sure that when opening and installing the memory assemblies touch the PC's metal chassis with one hand to get read of the electrostatic charges from your body.

If this is a wrist band you are referring to, you put it on either wrist, and ground the alligator clip end. It is supposed to drain off any static charge you might have, and prevent that charge from destroying any semiconductors.

How to remove exterior card cover so i can install a new card

Dear William,
Best practise: wear an anti-staic wrist-band! Leave machine plugged in to power but make sure that power is switched OFF at wall - (this will ensure that the machine is safely 'earthed'. . Open box cover - there are usually release button(s) to do this. Once computer box is open, connect anti-static wrist-band alligator clip to bare frame. The PCI-card covers are usually attached by one screw/nut: UNDO. Remove slot-cover. Insert new card into PCI-slot. Make sure it is home & replace locking screw. Remove anti-static clip. Close box. Power-up & let Windows find/install new device. I hope that this helps - 'b'ye - Bruce.

Dear Jeremy,
The human body can store up to 50,000 volts static electricity which is more than enough to fry components. MAKE SURE YOU ARE EARTHED! (1.): Switch power off at wall. Leave plugs in - (this will ensure that the computer is 'earthed'. (2.):Open box. (3.):Connect anti-static wrist-band alligator clip to bare metal frame of box - a bare screw head will do if you can not see any uncoated metal in the box). The password jumper has 3x sockets in a row. (4.):Move jumper plug to other 2x sockets to reset - (blank) - password. (5.): Remove anti-static clip. (6.): Close box cover. (7.): Power-on at wall. (8.): Reboot. If you want to reset a new Password, repeat above steps & move jumper-plug to other 2 sockets...when you reboot, you will be asked to enter new password. I hope that this helps - 'b'ye - Bruce.

Try swapping the ram sticks with each other and see if it still reports 512. If it does...then it sounds like you damaged one of the seats for the RAM somehow. Did you have any static shocks occur?

I installed 2GB of Crucial memory on my Dell XPS 400 (In slots 3 and 4), but when I rebooted the computer, it booted up but then nothing - blank screen. I tried removing the new memory and again same thing...

Did you wear a anti-static wrist band when you replaced the memory? Or did you werag gloves?
Please note that you should never touch computer memory with your bare hands, because it can discharge the memory.
Thankfully the chance is very small.

Another thing could be that the memory is not placed right. It has to fit right in the slots.

If you boot up with the old memory do you also get a blank screen? If no, then probably the speed is different. (Please check if it is 533, 677, 800 mhz, or different

Indicates a memory error, if you have more than one ram/memory you can try them one at a time in the machine (i always advise using anti-static wrist band when handling sensitive components) Ensure memory slots are clean/ free from dust If there is more than one stick of ram check they are compatible

How to install new memory

99.99% of the time you can just open the case and pop the memory into the memory slots. I have never run into any issues doing it this way. But if you want to do it "properly", then you should wear an anti-static wristband and attach it to the metal part of the computer case in order to prevent possible damage during installation. See link below for example. This is just the first one I came across when searching google:
