Referring to this page - HP Support
- under memory it says the maximum supported is 512MB (two of 256MB) so you should be okay with what you bought. PC133 is fine for PC100 machines, it just means the RAM won't run as fast as it could in another machine.
Do both sticks work on their own? i.e. you don't have a defective stick? If so maybe you have a defective memory slot. Buy a can of compressed air and blow out any dirt from the socket. See this tutorial for more info - Cleaning the Interior of your PC
As to your question about a single 512MB stick - No, I don't think that's possible.
