Default stop error

hello, my computer started to give me a blue error screen after login. im working with windows xp. the stop message is 0x000000c5. i looked into it and found its most likely my ram. i replaced the ram with the original ram sticks and it works fine but with the newer one that i had installed several months ago with no errors gives me this message after a minute or so being logged on. i have not installed anything recently and cannot figure out what the problem is or how to fix it. any help would be appreciated. i am running a dell dimension 3000. i will give any information requested to help fix this problem.
cpu 2.40 ghz
ram 1.278mb with 1gig upgrade/original ram 512mb

Default Re: stop error

Are you sure the new RAM matches the specs required by the machine? I.e. the right timings/speed/voltages?
