Do both modules work when only one is installed, i.e., if you replace the currently installed module with the other module, does the system work? Are both modules identical? Is that PC an IBM NetVista M42 Series 8305? If so, it should accept modules up to 1 GB for a total of 2 GB.

Did you go into the BIOS and save the settings after installing the second module? The system might simply be warning you that memory size has changed from 256MB to 512MB; saving the BIOS settings will confirm the modification.

An IBM Net Vista is a PC that normally runs Windows XP, not Vista. Since that system came with a P4 2.4, it has to be quite old.

Not for that type of memory, but they should have similar specifications.

If it isn't on the list, you'll have to check in your manual or contact Lenovo.
