    I recently built a system with a KT600 Dragon Plus v2.0 and an AMD
    Athlon 2500+ CPU. I used a single 512MB stick of Kingston PC3200 RAM
    for several days, with no problems. I bought and installed a second
    (identical) stick of RAM. The PC booted and Windows XP (Control
    Panel/System) acknowledged the 1024MB of memory. Soon afterwards, I
    got a blue screen of death (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA). Each time I
    would re-boot, this failure would occur again. I then tried all
    possible one & two stick combinations in the two available DIMM sockets
    and found the following:

    (1) I can use either of the 512MB sticks alone and everything is fine.
    (2) If I fill both sockets, I either can't boot or crash shortly after
    booting.

    I tested the two sticks separately with memtest86 and discovered no
    errors.
    Any ideas?
