Recently increased my memory from 128 to 640. Now Windows XP will not load.
Just receive the message to use last known good configuration or start
windows normally. Have tried both options but neither one works. Please helps

Power off and put your memory back the way it was.
Power on and verify that your machine can boot with the old memory.
How did you determine what memory to buy?
Did you research compatibilty?
This site will walk you through the process:

Try it with just the new memory stick - is it 512 MB?
