Default RAM Upgrade failure

Ok, basically this is what happened

I have a EI Systems Computer, (EI Systems EI 205 scores 7.5 out of 10 at Reevoo)

I went to crucial.com to look for a ram upgrade, they didn't have my computer on the list so i emailed them and then received a reply on a ram stick which they said i should purchase if i wanted to upgrade

1GB, 240-pin DIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 upgrades for Biostar P4M900-M4 Motherboard, CT730145 from Crucial.com

I then purchased the stick and i recieved it today, i then put the stick in and then booted up my computer, it worked fine

I came back from a bit of football a few hours later, i booted up my pc and now i see that it doesn't reach the login screen, i keep getting BSOD's and also it would black out and restart or just go black and appear with a big mouse icon and nothing else

I removed the ram and its working fine now, but when i put it back in before i keep getting these problems

Any Help?
