I just got two new 256MB sticks of Elixir DDR333 Ram, and having the following problem with them:

When I plug one of them in on their own, it shows up in the system memory check as 512 megs, then freezes after the memory check. When I plug one in with my old ram (twinmos PC2700 256mb ddr333), if it's in an earlier slot than the new stuff, the new stuff still shows up as 512 megs, but crashes when my OS (windows 2k) tries to boot (presumably because windows doesn't like accessing memory that isn't there). If it's in a laters slot than the new ram, I have the same problem as when the new ram is plugged in on its own.

I'm using this in an epox 8k9ai motherboard, latest bios version.

Any ideas what could be causing it/how to fix it?
