so your ram is definately bad... did the person on ebay have a return policy... or is it still covered under warranty... if not you might be SOL...

EDIT: heres the sellers return policy

hmmm, somethings wierd, i have 2 ram before the 1gb one (the one that doesnt work) the two were a 512MB and an 128 MB, they both work, then i put the 128 MB in slot 0 and the 512 MB in the slot 1, it works. but when i put the 512 in slot 0 and 128 in slot 1, i have the same problem as the 1gb by itself.
