memory problems

I recently bought a new pc (emachines 2200) it came with 256mb ddr ram 266 pc2100,single sided.I bought an extra 256mb memory for it of the same type although it is double sided and a different brand.I placed it in the second slot next to original memory.The problem is that with new memory inserted the pc wont boot up and monitor displays no signal message.Is there something i need to do or have overlooked. Thanks.

might need to check memory properly inserted again, do you get any bios beeps when starting up.

memory is inserted properly don't get any bios beeps or anything.Tried new memory on it's own this brought up the window xp loading page but it just stays on that.

"download memtest86,create a windows bootdisk, extract files from the zip arhive, double click install.bat to copy program to floppy, bootup with it"
