Where are you telling you where the max is? If it's in BIOS I think you can change it up as you add ram to it... If you just add it, it probably won't even register

If the BIOS only supports 256mb and you try to put more in then it just won't boot up.
it booted fine...im wonder if this could be the answer...the computer originally came with windows 98 but now i have xp maybe that made a difference??

That sticker that says 256mb max is probably teling you what you have in it now. It probably maxes out at 512 or 768mb.

if it registers in windows then it's working. :)
no fool i took my 64 one out when i bought my 256. because the sticker said 256 max so i never put the 64 mb back in. so today i put them both and worked

I think you need a new computer, even a $400 Box from Dell would be a huge upgrade. Even if you max the ram 256, you won't see a lot of improvement, espeacially if you are running XP.
