Forget the manual timing idea.Stick with the way it was built to be . Installing DDR Dims other than the recommended configurations may cause memory sizing errors or system boot failure.Install Only identical(same size and type) DDR Dimm pairs using your MOBOs recomendation table.Sale the 256 module to someone and get another 512 then run your Dual Channel.

I mentioned before that both of my RAMs are from Crucial. I don't know why that would be a issue. I followed the instruction in terms of which DIMM each stick should be in. Maybe the best thing to do is just use 512MB and let the 256MB go.

i think it is a BIOS issue
and it is the BIOS which probbaly prevents two different RAMs from working together?
