I would say that you have installed (if this message is new since the memory installation), a bad module. Pull the new memory, replace it with your old memory and see if the error goes away.

Soapbox: there are a gazillion companies out there that glue components to boards and call themselves "memory makers"

Pay a little more and go with:
