Just tried one stick .. 256Memory
Tried the other ... 256 Memory
Ah, I think, the motherboard must be broken!
Put them both back in ... 512 .. back to how they should be.
I must not have reseated them very well when I took them out the other 
day. I'll try a stress test on them just to make sure if I can find one 
on the Ultimate Boot CD. Not now though. Really need to work.
