Thats what gets me... the fact it works when a stick of the older memory is in also, but not when the new memory is in on its own.
Thats why I at first thought the memory was too fast, and inserting the old chips in, simply slowed the newer 1GB chip down, making it boot, but without the older chip, it can't drop the speed.
But from what I've read, 3200 speed should run at optimum speed.
By any chance did he give you faster memory by mistake?
