Does it count up in the BIOS on the first screen as you boot up.

Some motherboards will only read one side on a memory stick, so if you have a 256 stick (i28 on each side) it only shows 128.

Does it count up to 256 in the BIOS on the first screen as you boot up?

If not then one stick is not inserted properly (remove / refit both) or one stick is faulty.

With Win98 you should put the small memory in size in the first slot that should be 0 or 1 size should go up in steps from number one memory slot, Small to big

It will not hurt to also try it the other way round. Different Mobo's can affect how you load memory Modules. They are all different
