    Try placing the 256mb in the first 2 slots , boot up the system, if all works fine, power down and place the 512 in the 3rd slot. Try booting up, should work. But lets keep fingers Xed

    Sorry I tried that first because the 256's were in slot 1 & 2
    Maybe I will have to get another 512m

    A lot of machines REQUIRE that the simms be installed in pairs?
    Does yours?
