Check the each memory stick separately with

Also make sure the 2 memory sticks are compatible, if they were not purchased together as a pair, they may be different voltages and/or different latencies and cannot run together. If they are simply different speeds then try them in opposite slots, the faster one will run at the slower speed if the slower one is in the 'first' slot, but other differences may not be as simple to overcome.
As mentioned above, test each with Memtest86 separate and then together.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
