installed 2 gig ram getting blue screens now

Acer Aspire 5517 laptop with windows 7 64 bit had been running extra slowly so I updated ram from one 2g in one slot and 1 g in the other for a 3 g total to two 2 g sticks for a total of 4 g's. Now after running for a half hour sometimes less I am getting the blue screen. Should I have done something else? I saw no installation info just saw it recognized the additional ram. help..

Your memory specs are DDR2 SDRAM. The memory standards are DDR2-667/PC2-5300. You need to make sure that the memory modules match. Check the memory sticks and post what they are.
