Also try each ram stick one at a time and run memtest, a free download that checks for errors. rodney_ws April 30, 2010 5:47:59 PM So much to try... Try booting from a bootable CD (either a Windows disc or even an Ubuntu one) Consider booting from a MemTest86+ CD to check for memory errors Remove any hardware you can (sound cards, video cards if you have onboard graphics to fall back on, etc) Can't find your answer ?

AND... there was a Windows update earlier that caused a lot of headaches like the one you're describing. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
