This is a problem that is usually encountered when you mix two different manufacturers of RAM. On startup, do you only get a black screen? Does the system function properly when you remove the new RAM? Have you removed the old RAM and just ran the new RAM just to make sure the new stuff even works? If you have answered yes to these questions then chances are your new ram is incompatible with the old.
Good luck!

Check the motherboard manual or manufacturer web site for info as to how much memory can be installed on the motherboard,it may be that you have exceeded the maximum,and the memory cannot be accessed,without changing configurations if this is possible.

if the above answers haven't fixed the problem,try going back to the original memory installed.
then go to MSCONFIG,start+run type msconfig.
click on advanced,check the box that reads limit memory to & type in 512
restart & if everything works shut down & install your new memory
then go back to MSCONFIG & try increasing the 512 amount in small increments 32 or 64 restarting each time.
WinME is unstable above 512 but you can do it I've got 768 working fine,with the help of a program called CACHEMAN
find it at www.tweakfiles.com/

That is simply too much memory for Windows 9.x/ME to handle. Check out MS knowledgebase for article Q253912 which explains the problems associated with having more than 512MB
