I just installed a new 128 mb ram on my existing PC. But i m getting problems after installing the second ram, my computer just hangs and stops responding. None of my ram's are corrupted as they both work fine when used individually. I also updated the BIOS. but i couldnt solve the problem

My PC configuration is

ASUS CUWE-RM 810E Motherboard
Pentium III 800 MHz
Hyundai 128 mb ram (old)
Hynix 128 mb ram (new)
Windows XP

Can anybody please help me?

You have an incompatability problem between the two RAM sticks.  They probably have different specs, and when your motherboard tries to run using the specs of one, it fails on the other.  You should avoid mixing different RAM, to get around this problem.
