You are using a totalk of 768 MB RAM on your computer and most computers don't work with excessive amounts of memory Please read your computer manual or call the manufacturere to find out what is the maximum amount of memory that can be used on your computer Most likely you will have to remove the 256MB Ram chip from the computer and it should work fine.
