memory may have got wrongly allocated to some hardware etc, have you tried restore to before the problem

This seems to be very widespread problem (22K results in Google!), & 'faulty' RAM isn't usually to blame as such.

Here's a related search on the Microsoft site click here - something there might give you a few things to try.

One person on another forum suggested these as a possible fix (re-worded to make better sense):
- Remove & reseat the RAM modules
- Try with only one module at a time
- Check RAM voltages in the BIOS, & set to correct/default ones if different to its specs
- Check RAM modules against the manufacture's compatibility list for that particular motherboard
- Try another brand of RAM if possible (to rule out a possible compatibility problem as above)
- Try with another working PSU, & a more powerful one if possible. Wouldn't recommend buying a new PSU, so try to borrow one off a friend/neighbour perhaps.

All the best, G

well it's weird i tested the ram and it said it was fine, but then i took out one stick of ram and left it to run on one gig and it works fine now, how strange!

What happens if you swap the RAM, again leaving just the one module?

What's the motherboard & RAM make & model please? Could be some compatibility issues with the two. G
