well we need more information than that. What your original 512mb stick manufacturer is and what the new stick is....if they are the same speeds, PC3200 then it should simply plug in and work....

Keep in mind however that even if they run both at PC3200 speeds their timings are necessarily the same. So you might have to change your RAM timings to fit the specifications of the new stick.

Your motherboard might not allow 1GB Ram.
Finished With TF.
