memory upgrade

I just added 256mb of memory to my computer.  I previously had 2 other cards (a 64mb and a 128mb).  

I put the card in and booted and an error message flashed on the screen for a few seconds that said something about a "memory size error".    The system then booted.  I went under System in the Control Panel and I noticed that the correct amount of RAM is listed.  I shutdown and rebooted and the error message did not appear again.

Do I have a problem?

dp24dp24,
If the error message does not come back when you boot your computer, your bios just was seeing a change in the memory and adjusting to it. If you have problems at boot with memory size you may need to update bios.
Good Luck,
Jerry

It probably just did not like the fact that you did not reset the CMOS before turning it on the first time.  However, after that it is fine.

If you do have this problem then Jarich's suggestion about a bios update would be a good idea.
