I have two ram sticks of 128mb. one in each slot=256mb total. ok now here comes the problem. i removed one ram stick installed new 512mb and computer would not start. moved the 512mb to the other slot, still with a 128mb in the other slot,when i tried it that way i only had 128mb of ram. so the 512 is not recognized or not working, i also tried the 512mb by itself and it would not start or boot,nothing.
this is the ram that i was trying to install,brand new. i have heard it could be a density issues,
but i dont understand that.IS THIS THE WRONG RAM?

NOTE:my computer was unplugged, with no battery,when i installed the ram, i was touching the case and i touched metal before i touched the ram sticks at all.could i have shorted out the new ram or was it just bad? my two 128mb's still work fine so i am not sure. i am just frustrated? thanks very much. ALSO IF IT IS THE WRONG RAM COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHAT I NEED, THANKS AGAIN.
