Default Trying to install more RAM. Problem with BIOS??

Hi. I am trying to add more ram to my system. I currently have a PC2100 512mb (266mhz) installed in DIMM1. I just bought another PC2100 512mb (266mhz) to add. The problem is that when I insert the new memory into the DIMM2 slot, the computer won’t load up. Not even to the Bios. I know each one works because if I load up individually on DIMM1 slot, my comp works fine. Is there some sort of configuration on bios I must do before I can add more ram or maybe DIMM2 slot is damaged and cannot read?

Yes need specs...
If you have 4 slots 1 should go in the A alot 1 and the second should go in the B slot 1 But the soecs would make it easer to check out for you.
