Default M5A78L-M LX Memory compatibility

I had a custom built PC that I decided to upgrade. I went from an MSI GF615M-P33 with VS2GB1333D3 Corsair memory and an AMD Athlon II X2 245. Then I upgraded to an ASUS M5A78L-M LX with an AMD Athlon II X2 265. When I bought the ASUS I looked up the memory and CPU support on the ASUS support page. I thought since the memory I bought was a supported frequency it would be no problem, but I ran into some troubles. First I kept getting the blue screen when I tried to use the RAM. I finally had to set the RAM to 400MHz in the BIOS settings. Now when I look at the support page I can't find my motherboard model number. Could I have defective RAM or is just a compatibility issue? Also, which memory should I get to replace mine?

The MB you have does not support DDR2 According to ASUS:
What is the part number of the memory you have installed?
Quote:
2 x DIMM, Max. 16GB, DDR3 1866(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 MHz ECC, Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
Dual Channel Memory Architecture
* Refer to www.asus.com or user manual for the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists).
* Due to OS limitation, when installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Install a 64-bit Windows® OS when you want to install 4GB or more memory on the motherboard.
* AMD FX Series CPU on this motherboard supports up to DDR3 1866MHz as its standard memory frequency.
* AMD AM3 100 and 200 series CPU support up to DDR3 1066MHz.

This is the type of memory I have installed. 2 2GB sticks. I guess since it's not in the list it's no supported.

That is DDR3 memory and will work NP but if you want to upgrade the memory any of our Vengeance or XMS DDR3-1333 or DDR3-1600 modules will run great ON THAT MB
