check board for bios reset jumper also you could unplug it -- then remove the cmos battery-- I had one older computer that for some reason would not see new memory unless it was done that way.
Some old Dell machines required ECC registered RAM to work.

Does the original (256mb) stick work by itself, in place of the 512mb stick?
If not then are you absolutely positive you didn't break anything else or scratch the board when you broke the 'snap prong'? They are pretty strong and you need quite a bit of force to break one, also check for damage on whatever stick broke it in the first place.
By the sounds of the first part the slots are a bit touchy, try removing and replacing the sticks/then turning it on a few times to make sure the connection is being made properly, push them in firmly but carefully.
