Does it boot with a single 1GB stick? Guessing from model number that board has the Via 800 or 880 chipset. It might not support 1GB sticks. Might also be a setting issue.

Maybe some bad modules? Try using 2x1GB with different pairs to isolate the bad one.
Or your motherboard/CPU/both don't support so much RAM...? Is it DDR? DDR2? DDR3?
