The 256 mb one is probably faulty or something or there could maybe [im not so sure] be incompatibility issues?

Try putting just the 256 mb stick and boot the pc up, see if the 256 mb is causing the problems or not.

Maybe one of them is ECC and the other not. I've seen a couple computers with that problem and this cause. ECC and non-ECC on most mobos are note compatible. Just like DDR and DDR2 on the mobos it supports either, but not at the same time Try yellow's idea to. And, willeh did you read he said he had already put them each one alone. And it worked.
