My System Specs

Default

Update:

Computer was still getting that flickering screen and locking up so I removed all the new RAM and it ran fine.
Added one stick at a time and it seemed fine each time until I installed the 4th stick which nearly instantly caused it to flicker & lock up.

Tried different sticks in each slot but the only time it locked up was when I had all four sticks installed.
Left it with 3 x 512MB sticks and it seemed fine, but when she went to play solitaire it kept freezing up on her again (no flickering screen but everything just froze.)

I just downloaded memtest so I'll take that over & try it.
I didn't replace the video card as it had seemed stable when I left, but I think I'll install it anyway just to eliminate one of the possible problems.
