Default Memory Problems...HELP PLEASE!!! lol

ok....been lookin to upgrade my memory, was workin wit 320mb, but figured id up it to 512mb.....so i go and buy a new stick, pny 256mb pc100, and get home...put it in the slot....start up the pc, and i get taken to the F8 screen before the OS loads that asks about starting up normally, safe mode, etc...so i press enter to start windows normally....and repeatedly, im taken back to that same screen, never any progress. now when i take the old 256mb stick out, the new one works......could it possibly be that the new memory stick isnt compatible with the older chip sets??




im using an HP Pavilion 6830, pretty sure the old memory chip is also pny, id say about 4 years old , maybe more.


any help is very much appreciated

Ok your mobo will not accept this much RAM. With a Celeron 700mhz processor, 512 is to much. I would think that the system would simply ignore it, if it couldent handle that much, but it dident.

Here are your specs.
