Hey,

My system specs are

CORSAIR TW3X4G1333C9A
CPU AMD|PH II X4 955 3.2G AM3
MB ASUS|M4A87T AMD870 AM3
HD 750G|WD SATAIII WD7500AALX
PSU ANTEC|TP-550 550W
Geforce 8800GT 512

I recently started having some problems with my computer that have gotten progressive. First my system time would mess up on the hour every hour, accelerating the time. Second, my computer would refuse to boot sometime and my DRAM light on the motherboard would be ready. I have changed the CMOS battery, as a friend suggested but I still have problems.
Third, I get no video at all as the computer attempts to boot. I do not believe I am making it past POST.
Any ideas to fix this problem would be appreciated.

Thanks

With those problems, especially if the DRAM light on the mobo is lit, it sounds like bad RAM, to me. Try taking out both sticks, and using first one, then the other.
If your system posts with either, then the stick it didn't post with is bad.

Didn't work, the DRAM light has been going on and off all week. Sometimes the light would go on and then go off and the computer would POST. It won't even POST now.
