I had a similar problem with a laptop once -- both cards were fine
individually, but if they were both installed together, I got memory
errors. Nor was it a a system board problem.
I was told that the problem was memory bus capacitance -- or or both
DIMMs were slightly out of spec; together, that caused a problem.
But if it's always the second 512M that's failing, another possibility
is that your system board is bad, though it may just be dirty contacts.
