Well ya could post ya mobo make/model, and tell us what type of RAM ya got? so we can check compatability. Ya could also get hold of a program called memtest (google it) and fit the RAM in on its own and run a test on it to see if its faulty

Well the RAM seems compatable, but it is a cheap brand, so it could be that. Try memtest and see what happens

afew weeks ago i went and got myself a new stick of 1GB RAM, when i put the new stick in the machine i saw the computer was picking up the ram and everything was cool. But about 1 min later it would restart the machine and start all over again. I grabbed that Bastard ram and got back to the place i brought it from and they did a mem test and reported it was Dead, so they gave me a new one for free. just go send it back mate.
