Some boards like Abit doesnt support 400 MHz although they supports 533 and 800, so maybe your board is one.

Check your Manula to be sure

Is your RAM labelled PC3200 (PC500?) and NOT 200MHz or 400MHz. If it is labelled as MHz rather than PC3200 it may not be true PC3200 RAM.

Also, have you good quality memory? I usually stick to Hynix or Kingston, but apparently Kingston is have some problems at present. I have also used PQI which seems to be fine except that I have not yet tried it on a good range of models and brands of boards to be sure.
