I have a 3 year old PC with a Celeron D3265J@2533 mhz processor, running Windows XP home edition. I originally had 512mb(2 slots with 256mb each) of DRR2 RAM and recently tried a 1GB card, performance is better. But occasionally it just quits, and reboots. I also tried one of the original 256 cards alongside the 1GB and it does the same thing.

Is there any setting to try and adjust? Maybe something in virtual memory?
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

If it only resets when the 1Gb stick is installed, that stick might be faulty.

For testing purposes remove the 1gb and go back to the 2- 256mb of ram.
If it runs, then the 1gb is faulty as Neil has stated.

No, I have tried 3 other memory sticks, none of them have worked. Only the original 2-256mb memory sticks have worked, but computer is slow with the originals.
