Seeing your configuration your PC is old model PC. Your motherboard is gigabyte containing DDR-1. DDR-1 RAMs does not match many times. It is a big problem happening. You should carry your PC to the sales Centre.
You have to try many RAMs. You have to take which RAM match with your old RAM and your Motherboard RAM's slot. If it still does not work you should buy two RAMs which match with each other or use just only 256. If still any problem and you want to increase your configuration then change your PC. Modernize it into new model PC contains modern configurations. This might help you. Hopefully you have got your answer.
Since you are buying a memory card or RAM module for an old computer, you need to check the type of RAM it is using or that the motherboard supports. Like for example, the standard 1 GB DDR1 DIMM SDRAM RAM module has 184 pins while older 128 MB DIMM SDRAM RAM module has 168 pins.
You need to be sure on the type of memory module to buy because if you purchased the wrong memory module, it will not fit the memory slot because of the notch. To make sure on what type of memory module to buy, consult the documentation or manual of your motherboard and check the memory module it supports.
Since you have a GIGABYTE motherboard, go to GIGABYTE Support Motherboard Download and download the manual for your motherboard. It should contain the complete details of its specifications and supported devices. Here, you need to select the socket model of your motherboard. You can find it on the processor slot.
