Check the manual - it will probably state that it will support 512 mods but unfortunately all memory modules are not the same. The mobo manufacturer should be able to tell you what chips the board will support.

Check the manual to see if it supports 512mb in one slot. do not forget you can fit DDR and SDram they may be different size depending on type

PS the Ram you have bought may not be compatible with your board. That?s why its best to buy from Crucial as you can look to see what type of memory you need. Not all memory is made equal
