thinkpad R51 added memory and now freezes

I bought a Thinkpad R51 1836 BAU from a friend.  I added 1GB of memory.  Now after varying amounts of time the computer freezes.  I was going to connect to the download on this website but i cannot keep it on long enough to do this.  Is there something else I can do?

Download this utility Memtest86+ to test your memory.
Take out the new stuff. Test your 'old' memory first.
Then swap memory with the new stick. Test that.
Then test them together.
Possibility is the new RAM is not compatible, has the wrong CL, or is defective when it 'warms up'.
