Both of your SODIMM RAM modules should be the same type and speed i.e. IGb - SODIMM Pc2-4200 ddr2 (ddr2 533 MHz).

Do both 1Gb modules work when installed alone? If not one might be faulty.

Do both 1Gb modules work when installed alone in either memory slot? If not, a memory slot may be faulty. (if a slot hasn't been used before, try gently installing and uninstalling the ram module(not with the laptop on). It may clean the contacts in the slot.

Here is a link to the Acer Aspire Quick Specs Sheet.

Did you just add another dim of ram to what was already there and did you match the Ram speed and latency to the original dim . If the timing isn't the same there will be no joy. Will the computer run with just the new stick without the old . There is a possibility you got a bad ram right out of the box it wouldn't be the first time. I have received a few doa in my time.
