You need to run a memory diagnostic such as MemTest. You'll need to try different DIMM configurations to see if the problem is with a DIMM slot or a DIMM. Try one stick of RAM in the last slot first. If MemTest passes, start adding sticks back in one at a time until it no longer passes. Then when it fails, take out the stick that you last added and replace it with a stick that has already passed. This will tell you if you have a bad stick or a bad slot. Alternatively you can take the stick that failed and put it in a different slot, while removing all other sticks.

Since DDR3 and DDR2 are not interchangeable, and no one makes 1600MHz DDR2, his board must support DDR3.
