Blue screen from memory, ideas?

  1. I was running vista 32 bit with 2 gigs of ram. I bought a third gig stick (so i was running 2 1 gig sticks and 2 512 sticks) and installed it. It posted and everything, but when windows vista finished loading it gave me a blue screen. After hours of troubleshooting i got it to work, but now i can only run my one 1 gig stick and ONE of my 512 sticks (so by attempting to up my memory from 2 to 3 gigs it instead dropped to 1.5) I've tried everything, i know the memory is compatible and it isn't broken, any ideas why this may be happening?
    thanks

    just to check that it is ok, download memtest86 and see what the results are :)
