1) What platform/CPU?
2) How much RAM to start?
3) How much did you put in?

With a 256m stick being recognized it's likely 8 was assigned to your onboard video.
If the stick is faulty it's entirely possible that the capacity won't show up.

Make sure it's seated correctly. Also, make sure it's the right kind for your PC (make sure speed and timings are the same as the other stick).

Reseat
Replace the 256 stick with the new one and see if boots from same slot.
Clear CMOS

At least a starting point.
