it could be a few things, is there any other ram in the computer? The motherboard may only ba able to handle 64mb, doubtful, but possible. The RAM may be a higher speed than the bus can handle, even tho the RAM may say it is backward compatible.

jwitt has the answer,,this system only supports 48MB. Dont ask why compaq did this, but that is the bottom line. You are stuck at 48. Sorry.
