If it's pretty old (In PC terms) you may find each slot is limited to a maximum amount per slot... E.G. Max of 256mb overall, or perhaps 256mb per slot, etc...

If it's a branded, off the shelf PC, then use something like the Crucial memory advisor here

Can only tell you that if we know the MB model.

But you can use Crucial, as Dazza has said, to identify what slots you have and the modules that it will expand to.
