    What memory have you bought? Is it a single 2GB stick? Have you removed your older memory? Will need the info to provide any further assistance.

    What speeds are your new RAM? Specs and brand?

    What happens if you just place a single 1GB stick. Try swapping them out one at a time and check if your system still has problems.
