RAM Error 917 Expansion riser not detected

Specs: Windows XP, 256
Ok i have this crap computer that i wanted to put more RAM into. Originally it had a 256mb and a 128mb DDR ram installed. I had the same exact computer missing a hard drive so i took the one 256mb stick out and put it in place of the 128mb in the pc im working on now to make it have 512mb RAM. So i did that and the computer recognized the upgrade. But now when i turn on my pc it says this messege, "917- Expansion riser not detected.Unplug machine and install riser." So i thought maybe the ram was bad so i put back in the 128mb and still recieve the same messege. However it gives me the option to boot by pressing F1 at this error prompt. I read an older thread that suggests I should fix the riser and check loose connections. This really helped and I don't see Error #917 anymore but it still asks to press F1 to save configuration changes and my keyboard doesn't work now. Please help me!

Why have you plagiarized what was originally asked two years ago in THIS thread?
