Oops, looks like you got the wrong type, this is what you need
PC2-4200 - DDR2 - 533MHz
When you power up computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.
Then change screen resolution to 1024*768 then aply and ok.
and ifg not able to see enable vga mode then check your ram frequency may be it is not compatible with it.
