Try removing one?
Maybe 2xIG is too much for the System.
Ensure you are Grounded by touching a Metal part of the turned off Computer, or wear an antistatic Strap. Try it as just 1G and report back. Sometime you can Jump too High with RAM and the Computer can't keep up.
What I mean is to let it get used to 1 G, first then let it accept the other 1 G later.
Did you unplug the computer before installing the new memory ?
Where did you purchase the new memory ?
What brand/model is the new memory ?
Is the total number of black chips on 1 stick even or odd ?

You may want to try removing the sticks of ram and re-seating them "firmly".
A good can of air cleaning out any dust "in" the memory slots would also be a good idea.
A good memory test would be to go to http://www.memtest.org/ and download a copy of MemTest86+ and run it on your computer. It will tell you if you have a defective stick of memory. Then by process of elimination you can pull one stick and re-run the test till it shows no errors.
Be forewarned..... MemTest86+ takes some time to run. Patience is a virtue.
