It could be any number of things, but to narrow it down, try these:
I assuming that you ADDED to what you already had, if that is the case, the switch the RAM chips and see if you get the same errors.
In the case that you REPLACED the existing RAM, then see if your IT guy has another one to replace it. Just temporarily, to see if it is the RAM chip or not.
If the lockups are still happening at random intervals, even if you went so far as installing the old RAM back in, then it is likely that there is something wrong with the RAM slot. This part is not serviceable.
You may also want to google for 'online RAM checking'. Even if the computer does not stay on long enough for the test to finish, it will save the information on the server, and will continue, until it is complete.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
