Are you sure the memory is compatible with the PC?
What exactly happens (the exact message) when you boot up with the new memory?

That old system takes PC-100 RAM (though PC-133 will also work). That stuff hasn't been manufactured in years, so the question is, did you purchase new-old-stock or used RAM?

Also, is that newer RAM ECC? Some motherboards do not accept ECC.

Pretty unlikely that a bottom feeder like e-machines would take ECC.

Exactly! And it is easy for a novice to accidentally purchase ECC memory. . .
