  1. Are you sure the memory is compatible with the PC?
    What exactly happens (the exact message) when you boot up with the new memory?
  2. 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?
  3. 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. . .
