Ok, I guess i bought a wrong RAM stick for my computer. So right now I'm using a 256 stick and that's not quite cutting it (as I'm sure you all know). So here's my motherboard, what it says about memory and the stick I bought. if you can tell me why it isn't working, that's great and let me know if my motherboard has something weird, or if i was just being too cheap with the RAM...I wanted to save some cash to get the system up and running.

The mainboard accommodates two PC2100/PC2700/PC3200 184-pin DIMMs (Dual Inline Memory Modules):
• Supports up to 2.0GB of 266/333/400MHz DDR SDRAM.
• The DDR400 only support two maximum unbuffered DIMMs and not
available on registered DIMMs.
• Supports unbuffered DIMM configurations defined in JEDEC DDR DIMM
512 MB (2X256MB) 184pin PC2100 400MHz DDR RAM Upgrade
Like I said, I know it was cheap, but I just wanted to get the system going. I get an error on my MB LED saying that it's not compatible...if anyone could tell me why, that'd be great. I'm gonna buy 512 if this will somehow work, or a gig of RAM once I know why this didn't work. thanks in advance!

edit: btw, I don't know if it matters, but I'm using a AMD Sempron 2800...
