    Default New Ram causes BSOD

    about 2.5 years ago i bought a new comp.

    CPU - Athlon XP2000
    Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-7VRXP (based on your rave reviews)
    Memory - Samsung 512MB DDR PC2700 (CL is 2.5)
    Video Card - Nvida GForce TI 4400
    WIN XP PRO


    the other day i bought a new Memory Stick. i bought the same one i have listed above to insure maxium compatibilty. with the new stick in, i get the bsod soon as the desktop comes up. bsod also comes up in safe mode at desktop. i even tried takeing out the old memory stick and leaving in the new one. i still get bsod at the desktop in normal mode and safe mode. when i pull out the new stick, windows is perfecty fine. on start up the new stick is show in the memory test weather i have it by itself or with the old stick. so i know windows is detecting the new stick.

    i do have the latets drivers for everything and bios has the latest flash.

    does anyone have any ideas why this is happening?

    The memory is bad, replace it or have it RMA'd through the manufacturer.
