Memory, Motherboard, Or Hd Problem

Recommended Posts

the other day my computer botted up saying i hat like 1524 mbs of ram, when i only have a gig of ram, then it would boot to the windows loading screen and just freeze while the blue bar is loadin, its strange, i dont if this is my memory, or hd or mobo, my ram is kingston value ram, but when i switched it out for a sec to some brand name ddr333 512mb ram, it identified my ram as 524mbs but the problem with the windows screen was still happeneing, any suggestions?

you either need to clear your cmos, and reconfigure it. Or update your bios. what kind of mobo is it? Or check your hd connection.

It could be ure mobo try the ram in another comp. I don't think ure hdd is the prob. O and let me know if it is the mb I know someone with a laptop having a simular problem. His laptop crashes alot and he has 512mb but windows says its a bit lower thatn 512. Its says like 448 or something like that.

I would write down all information in CMOS before you clear it, your settings though.
