Default Ram Upgrade

Hi, I have a 'Time computer' which is old so decided to upgrade the ram. So I bought a 256mb, SDRAM, PC133 DIMM memory module ,Here it is - http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/sto...ory_oid=-28003

I have installed it but my pc gets stuck on boot up. When i take it out my pc boots up fine.

Any ideas?
