Try running it through Memtest86+ see if you get at least one full pass with no errors.

I tried the memory tester that comes with windows and it failed, does this count?

I'm not sure what memory tester that is... Try downloading memtest from here
http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

Do you have a case speaker? If so, what beeps are you getting when you start your computer?

I assume you haven't changed any of the settings or voltages?

Also, after running memtest+ try running only one stick at a time and seeing if you still experience problems.

You're going to need to replace that stick. If you can return them to where you bought them (assuming they are under warranty still).
