IT IS JUST your memory which is somehow mismatched or tweaked in the BIOS! If they are physically different other than in the serial number printed on them, it's best to return them to the seller asking for a matched pair (please.) First though, note that the laptop can take 4GB max...may as well go with that...and especially if they are firmly in the lookalike category, you might try going into BIOS memory settings and setting things up for the new memory. Often enough setting a different voltage is appropriate, as is marking down the old settings and backing them off to automatic before optimizing for your particular make.
Oh yeah. Sometimes there are motherboard switches or such that need to be switched when you change memory too...sorry, I didn't manage to look into that; but if it's not staring you in the face when you put the memory in with good lighting, the BIOS should be enough.
