Which slots do you actually have the memory in? Make sure you have the 2 512 meg sticks in installed as a bank,(in the 2 orange slots) and the 1 gig stick installed in the other bank. (one of the black slots) You will not be able to run dual channel mode with 3 sticks though. If you have them installed correctly, try downloading and running memtest.

Nice mix of memory lol!

I agree memtest (86) is essential. If your system passes memtest its probably ok.

I suspect your problems arise from the different memory. If memtest fails try each module on its own. If they are ok JITPublisher makes a good point on banks. Also some of the latencies need to be increased to use two modules on a channel. Disable timing by spd.
