It could be that it does not support CAS3 which DDR400 is, DDR266/333 is usually CAS2.5. The motherboard may only support single-sided memory, but as you list no specs it is guesstimating!!

Go to http://www.crucial.com and use the Memory Scanner is the easiest way, you board may only support 512MB maximimum !!
