Hi,
I upgraded my RAM today and now when I switch my pc on I get a message saying the computer has failed self memory test.

In system/hardware it is now showing correctky as 1GB RAM.

The RAM was bought from a reputable source and is guaranteed to be compatible

It could be a BIOS bug - if the PC is running ok, I'd not worry about it.

Re-seat all your RAM sticks, just in case there is a dry contact there.

Clear the cmos, via the motherboard jumper. This will reset the values in the bios.
