When I had my computer built, I had a 128mb memory chip installed. I've tried to upgrade several times, 2 at 256mb and 2 at 512mb and each time the new chips come up with problems (the one beep at start up and infrequent crash problems). Is there a way to check the slots on the motherboard to see if there is a problem there?

What kind of motherboard is it? And what type and manufacturer is all this memory?

The mother board is a "VIA 693A ATX Mainboard". The booklet says that it has "three 168 pin DIMM sockets and memory size can be up to 1.5gb with parity/ECC". I've purchased non ECC chips until this last 512mb chip. It was a non registered ECC PC133 chip.

Ok, I'm done looking smart now. I really have no clue what you should do. If I were you, This would be about the time I start bitching and whining to the manufacturer of your board. :D
