Your motherboard most likely does not support SATA. It should have DDR.

Do you know the exact model?

I am 99% sure you can't have a SATA hard drive.

I think that chipset can have DDR 266.

This might be compatible:

Newegg.com - pqi POWER Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 266 (PC 2100) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

It would help though if we knew what the mobo was.
Antec Twelve Hundred :: PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Watt :: EVGA X58 3X SLI
Intel Core i7 920 :: Zalman CNPS9900LED :: SLI: EVGA GTX 260 Core 192 SSC 896MB and EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 896MB
OCZ Platinum 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3-1600 :: Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB (2x1TB in RAID0) :: Hanns G 28" LCD Monitor
