Sounds like you have already read this posting. If you haven't, give it a read. Towards the bottom, it talks about diagnosing a problem component.

What happened when you installed the other stick of ram by itself?

Glad you figured it out. Seems odd that it wouldn't support it. I did notice that newegg.com doesn't list i3 in their support list but the asus website does. interesting.
