Answers :

What is the FSB of your earlier RAM. If its DDR1 then it should be around 333Mhz. Check the old one, it should be having a sticker which goes something like this [ 512 MB 333 Mhz ] Unless the FSB's match the PC will not be able to detect nor use it because the processing speeds are not the same. When buying another RAM always take the old one alongwith for the shp salesman doesnot make this mistake................sodeep
Check in bios may be some memory still shared for graphic.
