This motherboard can take upto 1gb ram in both slots, and yes I've tried in both.

Buy another one? This one cost me £40, I am in UK and that came from US, sending it back would cost and newegg.com don't deliver internationally I heard. There must be a way guys, it should work, it must work, my pocket money.

About the no brand thing, you see its from ebay, and I thought as that seller had tons of positive feedback, it would be ok.
you can download a bootable version of memtest to a cd. So your pc will boot from that cd, and run the test before your system gets stuck.

I've tried it, it doesn't. It does fine when the 256MB is in, but not for the new one.

I'm sure the seller would give you your money back if you paid the shipping to return it. Can't hurt.

I've bought lot's of RAM from www.crucial.com and never had any problems, maybe try them
