Might be a faulty ram stick, if there are more than two inserted, remove one of them but turn off power, remove battery before doing so.

Thanks for your responses. I did a back up to an external drive. When I unplugged the external drive from the USB, the plastic tab came off and thus the leads inside the USB were touching which created a short.

A small piece of paper inserted into the USB to keep the leads from touching has temporarily solved the problem.
