Hi kkkoolkev. Sorry I've not been able to come back earlier. XP Pro should be quite happy with 1024mb ram. I don't think Enlite make motherboards. Enlight make computer cases and Elite make motherboards. If you download and run Belarc Advisor click here or Everest Home Edition click here, you can find what motherboard you have as well as a lot of other things about your computer hardware and software.
As Georgemac says, you can generally use faster ram than your system requires, but not always. The reason that I always recommend Crucial memory is that the product quality is excellent, and the customer support is superb.
If your computer satisfactorily completes POST, and gives the normal POST beep, then there is probably no problem with the memory. If it doesn't, then your motherboard has a problem with the ram, which you MAY be able to overcome with a BIOS flash upgrade.
All versions of XP are quite happy with 1G RAM click here. The question is whether PC3200 memory is suitable for your motherboard-processor combination. Unfortunately the part number you quote doesn't match any that I can find. If you want to contact me via the envelope alongside my nickname, I'll give you my email address so you can send me a copy of your Belarc report. I make no promises, but I'll see if I can identify your motherboard from it.
