I just added http://www3.pny.com/2GB-PC2-6400-800-MHz-DDR2-Desktop-D... to my exsiting system RAM (that is a different brand) I have 2 sticks of RAM in two of my black slots and the 2 new sticks in the yellow slot.

Now the comp freezes randomly.

Mixing DRAM is not a good idea, try the new sticks in slots 1-3 and the old in 2-4, raise the DRAM voltage + 0.50 then if an Intel rig raise the NB + 0.60 or if AMD raise the CPU/NB + 0.75, if no joy let us know the models of the sticks as well as what CPU and mobo
