    switch the locations of the sticks in the Dimm slots, if the error is fixed then you have a prob with the stick currently in DIMM 1, if the problem either continues or gets worse then it is the stick in the DIMM 2 slot, which ever one seems to be causing the error should be replaced.
    You should also testing each stick separately in the PC and see which one the error occurs with.

    I would go for it spend a bit more money and get a Crucial or some name brand stick like that, they are less likely to fail.

    Glad you found out which stick was failing
