    Your motherboard doesn't support more than 2GB of RAM. What I gather from your post (a little undetailed as to what you did, exactly :p) is that you removed the old memory and installed the new ones. You need to make sure that the frequency of both sticks is less than 533MHz as your motherboard doesn't support 667 or 800.

    Basically, make sure that only a maximum of 2GB is installed, and that the frequency of each stick is less than 533MHz.
