IBM a20m ram issues

\015 I have recently bought two 256 mb of ram for my laptop. When I installed them and tried booting up. I kept getting a windows error and to try to fix it with my windows disk. I said to restart the computer and push "R" at the first screen. It just said windows error code 4. I put my two pieces of 128 mbs of ram back in it and everything worked right. I checked and the two 256 mbs of ram are suppose to be the right ones.\015
