Your ebay link shows you got the 2r x 16 sticks. There's also 1r x 16. The difference is the 2r sticks use low density modules and the 1r use high density.

Sometimes there's a problem when mixing the two types:

If your onboard memory is rated 1r then there might be a problem when adding a 2r stick. You might check the documentation for your U135dx and see if it specifies what type to add. Also check with the ebay seller to make sure it was the 2r that he sent you. If he sent 1r then maybe your netbook expects 2r. (It looks like he had several types and maybe didn't pay attention to what he was sending.)

Are you sure you're firmly inserting the ram sticks?

Try one stick at a time and see if it works then.

Does it still work when using the old ram? If not there must be some other problem.

Did you try one stick at a time? Sometimes a computer has problems seeing two, even though both should work together.

I think I got it so r1 is one sided and r2 as chip on both sides and as the mmemory on the mother board only has chips one one side

The one-sided/two-sided difference doesn't always mean chips on one or both sides of the stick so you can't go by that. You need to check the specs of the specific sticks and what the documentation of your netbook says.

Usually lower density sticks--the 2r ones--will work with systems using higher density sticks but given that yours work in other systems but not the netbook, the 1r/2r density difference is the only thing I can think of that could cause the problem.

Both show on grasshopper's amazon link as being compatible. Apparently the 8500 runs as 1066 mhz and the 10600 at 1333 mhz.

You might check too at crucial.com and see what they recommend.
