Default Dual channel problems

Hi I recently purchased 2 sticks of 256MB DDR400. They run fine when in single channel, but when in dual channel they cause a ton of errors. I have tried a friends DDR400 in my machine and it works fine. Is the my ram faulty or is there something I could do to fix this?

RMA the sticks of ram. Thats all you can do with them. Any two sticks can run in dual channel so it is not because you didn't buy a dual channel pacl.

Why we're on the subject, can any 2 sticks of the exact type of RAM work in dual channel? Or does the MoBo have to support it?

Say I have 2x Centon 512MB Value RAM, would it work on an older 478 MoBo?

If the mobo supports dual channel, most 478's do
