Default Computer failing POST - Removed Ram, Works fine

As the title says, the computer beeps like crazy when I turned it on. I removed an old stick of pc2100 256mb ddr ram. The computer powered on no problem, but now I put the ram back in and it still boots up and works fine.

So, do you think its safe to leave it in, or just ditch it?

Maybe it just needed reseating, it should work fine now

Memtest86+ returned no errors. I guess it was a seating issue.
