Yes, I took out the old 512 and installed one new one.  It gave me the "kill" thing.  Then I removed 
that one and installed the other 512 and it did a loop.  It would start to load then loop back to 
the beginning as if I'd just started the computer.

Therefore, since I can't get to the Ubuntu menu, I can't run the "memtest"
