Display goes blank

Specs: Windows XP
2 weeks before I added a dynet ddr1, 1gb, 333mhz, 2.5v ram to the existing 256mb
i installed the new ram and the computer just ran fine
but a week after the problem started:-
1) sometimes display just goes blank especially when I start or play counter strike
2) once the cpu started making noise with the green power light blinking rapidly just like when ram is not inserted
3) sometimes a blue screen popped up saying that a new device is not funtioning
4) cpu restarts on its own
i tried using only one ram at a time in different slots but problems persist

usually the computer just runs fine but sometimes it does the above mentioned things
i have P4 2.44Ghz with graphics accelerator
845 gv motherboard.
the worry is that now even the old ram gives the same problem
so is it an issue with my motherboard have i damaged it(although i handled it with great care) or some software problem

any insight is appreciated
please help i am desperate
thanks a lot in advance

It sounds like mismatched memory. Recheck the mother board specifications.

I bought some memory once. It was exactly the same but the mother board would only take 512 sticks & I had bought 1GB.

and the amazing thing is that when computer restarts the cd rom light blinks and checks for cd and i also get the 3 lock lights on keyboard blink which means it has restarted but the moniter's light keeps blinking just like when the power supply is on but the cpu is off AND THE MONITER IS BLANK

Try a different monitor.
