Also, I double-checked the RAM to see if it was the type for this computer and the answer is yes.

Did you buy a matched pair of RAM cards? Matched pair required for dual channel RAM.

Are the timings, CAS latency and voltage of the added RAM the same as the original RAM? Using RAM with different specs is a crap shoot.

Don't forget to run memtest86 overnight when adding RAM or having suspected RAM problems. (latest version is memtest86+ I think)
