Windows/BIOS not identifying new RAM

Well, here goes. I installed a 256 Mb PC2100 DDR RAM into the second slot of my mobo today but it doesnt seem to be indentified by windows or the BIOS. Yet, when I checked SisSandra - it did seem to locate and identify the second RAM slot. This is wierd, and I couldn't tell if they are clocked at the same speed or not. Any ideas? :eyemove:

Is it the same speed as your other stick of ram? because if the speeds dont match, i think the mobo defaults to the slowest stick of ram, also some makes of ram are incompatible with each other, so its best to get 2 sticks from the same company.Have you tried swapping the sticks around, or taking out the stick in slot 1 to make sure slot2 actually works.
