MSI K9VGM-V motherboard does not accept 2x1GB memory

Guys,

I recently bought a MSI K9VGM-V motherboard, and equipped it with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ (Socket AM2) dual-core processor.

I have installed two memory modules from Kingston (1024Gb DDR2 PC533Mhz), which should give me 2 gig of memory.

When both memory slots are used, the PC does not boot and beeps during POST (indicating a memory problem).

When slot 1 is filled and slot is empty, the PC boots with 1 gig of memory. I did this with both modules, both are in working order, they just cannot be present both at the same time...

What now?

New motherboard?

It's under warranty, and one of the memory slots appears to be malfunctioning...
