I would run extensive memtests (with each of the two memories and then 
with both installed). I haven't done this in a while, but my guess is 
you need to install one of memtest86 or memtest86+ (if not already 
installed) then reboot and choose the 'memtest' option in the grub menu.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
