have you tried reseating the dimms?
cleaning the contacts with a soft cloth might help also.
if the RAM worked fine in the "gaming machine" configuration, I very
much doubt it's faulty. my tests with doom3 and mismatched memory dimms
resulted in record speed very reliable "fault detection" (i.e., crashes
and freezes after no more than a couple minutes) while windoze itself
seemed to run fine for hours without any apparent problems.
