    problem with my mem plz help

    hi, i just recently decided to do some upgrading on my comp. I bought a new video card and some ram. I am still new to adding this but im sure i did it right. first i decided to put my new ram in i bought a ocz value ram with the same latency/speed/and size of my current kingston ram. both are pc3200/cas 3/512mb/unbuffered/nonecc. the problem is when i put the new stick of ram in the computer i started getting random reboots and errors. the 2 errors i kepy recieving were bad_pool_caller and a page fault in non paged area. I have no idea what these are. so i reinstalled windows w/ the original stick. everything went fine and put new ram in again, i got the same results. Im really clueless to what is going on. here are my current pc specs if it helps to know:
    athon64 2800+
    asus nforce3(k8n-e deluxe)
    512ram(trying to expand to 1gb)
    450 watt power supply
    160 gb western digital hd
    i do have a question that could be a problem yet idunno. im pretty sure the timings on the sticks of ram are diff. could that be a pos problem? if you guys need anymore info on anything about my pc just ask.

    little update while playing around i put in ram again an ran cpu-z. I clicked on memory. it recognizes the 1024mb of ram. But it says channels#single. shouldnt i be in dual channel? ifso how do i go about unlocking this?

    i am assuming you have a socket 754? if so, it doesnt support dual, that is why
