Hi George,

Does the problem go away if you remove the RAM and put it back the way it was before the change?

If so, you probably have bad RAM on your hands. Are you using just one 2gb stick or are there more than one? You could try using just one stick and then the other to see if the problem only presents itself in one of the set ups.

Or incompatible RAM. Did you ensure your motherboard supports that specific RAM?
