Yes, RAM can get ruined with static electricity. Make sure you touch a metal surface of the case before touching the RAM or other sensitive parts of the computer.

Check if the new RAM is compatible with your motherboard.

upgrade to 256mb? :p jeez what kind of ancient puter are you using?

I just upgraded to 2gb.

Anyway a program like memtest86+ will tell you if it's bad ram. Also your motherboard may not support 256mb modules.

What I'm getting at is that not all ram is created equal. I've got a stick of 256 that won't work in my mom's machine if I use her onboard video (works great if I don't use the onboard video). It gets the same pfn_list_corrupt and various other errors. I popped the ram in my machine and it works great. However it could also be a power issue on the 3.3v supply from the power supply. No real way to know without experimenting.
