Default Laptop Crashing

Hi,I'm running an Hp Pavilion dv2000 laptop and I'm having some issues with it. Ever since I upgrade the RAM from 1 to 2 gb my laptop has been crashing with a bluescreen.I just ran memtest and I received 1 error. Can anyone help out with this?

That happens sometimes with new ram. Reseat the ram and then run memtest

Try reseating it, if that doesn't help, you may have ended up with a bad stick of RAM, if you can get it replaced, do so.
