Hi Lethier,
It sounds lime your ram sticks are incompatible with each other.
Most ram vendors recommend keeping your ram the same speed and make.

here is a reference site;

I hope this helps.

I am trying to upgrade RAM on a Toshiba Satellite 1800 series notebook. The
RAM that the salesmen sold me was Azenram 128mb 133hz. My notebook has two
slots and can be upgraded to 512mb. Currently, I have Samsung 128mb 100hz in
slot 1. When I install the new RAM in slot 2 and keep the old RAM in slot 1,
my notebook starts, the hard drive inidicator momentarily lights up, and
then I get nothing (a dark screen). When I reverse the two RAM chips the
same thing happens. However, when I use the new RAM chip alone in either
slot, I experience no difficulties. I have updated my BIOS. What could be
causing this problem?
