Remove the original and replace it with the new and try it. If no joy then take it back..

update: well i managed to get the 512 ram installed, working fine, but now my 256 stick doesnt get detected, lol,

512= crucial pc2100
256= samsung pc2100

ive tried every single combination of slots there is, still no luck. is there anything else i can do? it definitely isnt faulty ram cos both sticks work fine on there own.
