Do you have one stick of memory at 512, or 2x128?

Sorry 512 should be 256 :o(

One 256 stick of memory!

If the memory is checking out ok, then maybe the procesor is getting too warm, did you install correctly, with paste/tape on the heat sink?

Tape on heatsink {retail box} temp of processor is 50 c.

PS. Temp. seems OK.
