Your motherboard might not support 256MB modules, warden11.

from warden11 , the spec says it will take 2 x256

Make sure that the 256 is in the first slot - 64 in the second.

click start\run,type msconfig and click OK.

(win98/ME)go into general\advanced and check to see if it is limiting the amount of RAM available to windows

(winXP)go into 'boot.ini' and check its set to 'maximum'

did as you suggested crx16, upped it to 512 and checked the box, no change.
