Default computer not recongizing ram. Help plz

i just got a 512 sdram stick of ram for my sises computer along with the one already in there which is 128 sdram. I start it up and go to system info and it stays a 128 i know it can handle more because i had to take out another 128 stick to put in in there. so i tryied just using hte 512 stick and it didnt even start up what does this mean.

Yeah you probably either got SDRAM for a DDR motherboard or DDR for an SDRAM motherboard.

well you wouldnt be able stick a sdram stick into ddr slot the memory wouldnt fit. But i suggest taking out both 128mb sticks and having one stick of 512 try that.
