Question motherboard not detecting new ram

i have a MSI KT3 Ultra-ARU KT333 Motherboard.. and when i tryed to put in 512mb ddr 266 ram (184 pin) it would not decet it all i got was a beeping sound when it started up.. when i put in the 128 and the 512 it starts up but only the 128 is detected.. what i want to to know is how can i get it to detect the 512 sticks that i have?? or is the 512 to big for it.. should i go with 3 sticks of 256?

any help would be apprecated

personally, i'd like to ask you which OS you're using, because i had a similar problem with winME, wouldn't detect anything over 512 actually... also, check to see if your board is 266 compliant, i'm not going to search online to findout for you, you have the manual handy.. right? anyways, lemme know about your OS and i'll continue from there =) also gimme the specs on your pc

Can you try the ram on another computer?
So we can discard it's a faulty stick...
