Re: For the computer guys
Could be many different reasons why this is happening. A bad stick of memory could cause this. Did you try removing all RAM except one stick? Try that, test it, then try the other/s.
Finding the cause of a problem like this is a process of elimination. Clearing CMOS and checking each stick of RAM are the first things to try. If you have a manual for your motherboard, look in there and it should tell you which pins you need to put the jumper on to clear CMOS. Leave the battery out for at least a few minutes. And do all this with the power switched off at the mains, but before you mess with the motherboard, press the power switch on the front of your PC a few times to ensure any remaining power is discharged. When you start the PC again, the BIOS should be at their default settings.
