Memory mishap

I recently purchased 1gb A-data ddr2 ram module to add to my pc which already had two modules of trancend ddr2 800..the problem is when i connected the a data module i started getting lot of BSODS and my computer crashed lot of times. I guessed it was software problem and re formated it still the problem remained till i removed the a data module. What can i do to solve this incompatibility?

My system specs
phenom 9650
2gb ddr2 800
350+160 Gb hdd
Ati 4850
creative xtreme audio

  1. What happens when you test with memtest?
  2. Try relaxing the memory timing and raising the RAM voltage .1 or .2 volts. If that doesn't work, I guess you are stuck with 2 GB of RAM.

    Maybe you can find some more of the Transcend RAM.
  3. memory timing in the sense, the ddr2 speed? or the separate times..if i set everything to auto..the system sets it at ddr2 667mhz single channel
  4. memtest does not work in x64
