The install disk should have a memory test option on the menu, try running it for 12-24hours; if the disk doesn't have the option, down-load and run memtest86.
Also lose the caps lock, it's hard to read, is considered shouting, it also gives the reader the impression of someone who can't type without moving His/Her lips.
Hello, thank you for the reply . I am running the 86 test now and will see what happens .......
do you know why i may not connect to the internet on my laptop wired or wireless os mandriva 2010. tried several options but think i must need some driver maybe? says it is connected but will not get on internet and the network works fine
