Default Compatible memory just wont work. Why?

i have an MSI PM8PM-V mobo with 3.2 GHZ celeron D, SATA drive, Radeon X1650PRO [HIS] etc. Now I have followed crucials advice and bought 2 1GB DDR2 533MHz / PC2- 4200 Unbuffered Non ECC RAM modules for this mobo, and it gets to the first BIOS screen and freezes. I cant think why or what to do about it. I have tried the modules seperately and nothing. i have tried another stick of the same, nothing. These are the recommened sticks for the board, CT12864AA53E, and nothing. If I put in the half gig sticks then everything is fine.

Is Crucial just wrong, or have i done something wrong, in which case what?
