It is highly possible that is where your problem is, you cant use a 256 and 512 together, it has to be either 256 x 2 or 512 x 2. Remove the 256 and just put the 512 on the orange slot farther away from the cpu and try the installation again.

It doesn't work with a single stick of 512mb? Have you tried all slots with it?

 

You definitely need to run memtest in any case to check the ram for stability, then you should run prime95 blend for a bit as well...I'd definitely say its your cheapo ram that is giving you problems..though the PSU may come into play later. I'm surprised that Windows installed correctly.
