Default raM troubles

Well my computer started off with DDR 512 Sdram and I recently bought another stick of DDR 512 RAM.......but with DDR 1024 Ram onboard, my computer randomly crashes for no reason....I took both sticks out and let them run separately to find out if one of them had problems....but neither one showed problems...its just when I combine them My computer starts randoming crashing.....it just rebooting without notice.......I believe both sticks are PC2100......and my motherboard says it supports up to 1024 ram.....So can someone please help me

I think you got two diffrent RAM sticks. You have to be sure. Your computer had two 256mb Sticks...? Creating 512mb?
