Ditto! I got the same board with an 800 mhz CPU and 256 mb of the same ram
with the same problem. 

Here is my theory: The DIMM slots on the board are miss-labeled. 

My fix: Move the DIMM to the slot nearest to the CPU ignoring the labels on
the board. =)

Please tell me if this works for you too.... I'm kinda worried though if I
ever decide to actually use those other three slots wheather they might
simply not work for being too distant from the northbridge. =(((
