    sometimes you can have problems when you mix and match different types of RAM 8)

    did you leave the 128Mb ram in when you installed the 2 256Mb ones?

    You need to match the type of RAM fairly closely. Otherwise you get just the problem you have.

    IBM machines are somewhat tricky with the upgrades I know this from experience. Like the guys said check the compatibility and try not to mix different types of memory.
