  1. Well it seems the faulty part is your 2GB RAM DIMM ?? Have you tried changing that ??
  2. Have you compared the memory timings between the two RAM modules? This may be the problem to why it freezes up because a matched pair of RAM have the same RAM timings and speeds.

    But if your computer freezes up with the 2gb installed, it should definitely be a RAM problem.
