WIN XP problem after installing memory [V2040]

regarding AMILO PRO V2040
hey, i have a wierd problem.
i just purchased 2 brand new 1Gb memory modules, and installed them in my V2040.
one in the back , and one beneath the keyboard.
it all seems fine, the BIOS reads 2Gb, and even the safe mode boots up, but for some reason the windows (xp pro), freezes, and the screen gets distorted after 2 minutes or so, after finishing booting.

i removed the one in the back to see if it works, and it works good with only 1 Gb, but i would like ofcourse to use both. the sticks are brand new by KINGSTON, i dont believe it has a pb.

any ideas?
maybe it doest support 2Gb? or should i install windows again?
thanks in advance !
