Yep. Both seem to be fine.

I'm absolutely stumped.

The best thing would be to get a matched set of RAM, 2X4GB, 2x2GB, etc.

Got 2x4GB Crucial memory and it is now working fine with 8GB ram.

I guess it can be temperamental if the memory is from two different manufacturers.

Yes, speeds vary as well as if its ddr2 or 3 etc.

It is always best to get ram in matching pairs, and if ram is replaced, it is much better to swap out all ram with new matching sticks then just installing new ram.

But you can sell your old ram on amazon or ebay to help make up for the cost
