When using two sticks of ram in a laptop, it is always best to use identical sticks. Mixing and matching leads to problems. Still, sounds to me like either one of the sticks is incompatible with the computer or has gone bad. Try booting one at a time. If one can boot the computer alone and the other can't then you have found your culprit. Also, never ever install a ram module into a booted computer. It should be uplugged with the battery out anytime you make changes to the ram

Many systems require that the first two memory cards to be twins. In others words you would need either 2 DDR2 1G memory cards or 2 DDR2 2G memory cards. But it usually doesn't even detect two non-twin cards so sorry about that. Also some memory cards are computer specific so you will need to check the specs of whatever system you are trying to put the memory cards in to see if they are compatible.
