Did you try the 4GB by itself? If your 2GB stick is DDR2 they WON'T work together can only use DDR2 or DDR3, if both are DDR3 they may not want to work together

@ may just not want to play together, best bet is a set of 2 sticks from a single package, mixing stings from different packages can always be problematic

Hi,
+1 Tradesman1 they 4gb by itself.

Also, not only the size of memory matters but the timing, speed and voltage must be the same.

What are the model and part number of memory?

May be a bad stick, have you run memtest on each by itself?
