I had 256 and had the guy at the computer store put in an additional 512 for a total of 768 so I would guess the answer is yes.

I have installed the RAM, and as long as I leave my PC running, it's fine. But when I shut it down and then restart it, I continue getting an error. Something about Win Memory error. I have also installed a new virus protection. Is there some way I can tell if the 512 is the wrong kind of DDR?

this shouldnt be too hard to figure out. first take out the new memory and see if the error persists. If not then that was your problem. I'm betting this is the problem.

Most system boards want the largest RAM module in the first slot.

And check again if the module is compatible with your system. Since you didn't tell us anything about your specific system, system board, OS, RAM, you'll have to research this yourself.
