    I just had the same exact problem... with some Transcend memory that's only 9 months old and was running wonderfully before I tried to upgrade to 10.5.5

    Somehow I can't see this as being a coincidence?

    Up the irons
    If it's a bad stick of memory contact the manufacturer for a replacement (if under warranty). Did you run Apple's hardware test? http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1509
