Default Problem installing SECOND memory module

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-K8NS.
I'm having problem installing my second memory module (512MB). Whenever I put it on the second slot, the computer doesn't boot, and no monitor signal. It just works with 1 memory module. Can anybody explain and help me please?

to further exspand on what has been said. Is the memory the same speed and voltage? those are things to look at. and as already stated try that stick by itself also to see if it comes up on that one alone.

Yes, the memory come from a same box, they are the original pair I bought first place. The one I'm using right now is the second pair, which is a new replacement from newegg. But the problem is still there; the computer just works with 1 stick memory. (2x512MB Rosewill).
How do I know if the memory is compatible with the motherboard?Can you show me where to get the information?
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-K8NS
Thank you

Yes, my Rosewill memory is DDR400. I have replaced both 2 memory sticks, but I still have the same problem.
