Error message relates to bad memory, as you cannot test it you may have to swap it out for a module that you know works, or if you have more than one stick in your lappy just try running one...

Thanks i have removed the 128 stick but on this laptop it has 64mb on board so could it be the on board memory? is it possible to use a jumper etc to disable it
