I recently bought 4GB of DDR2 800 memory.
for some reason to get the PC to boot I have to take out the 2nd stick and put it back in.
Memtest x86 found no errors and Windows memory dignostics found no errors.
any ideas what is causing this wierd error?

check the voltage range for the ram and see if you have room to lift it
