Try taking out the memory you put in and see if the problem still exists. Vista 32bit will not see 4gb of RAM.

thanks for that Ditch999 I have taken the extra 2 gig out and the machine boots up normally every time , so yes it obviously points to the extra memory but why does it not boot up properly every time with the extra memory installed.

Cheers
