    Your RAM as a problem eiter it is corrupt or not installed properly...

    This kind of situation only arises when you ave faulty hardware...

    the error u stated occurs becos of faulty h/w ( generally becos of improperly installed RAM or Faulty Ram).. However it mght also occur becos of ur monitor ( which mght hav gone faulty )

    However u hav checked both ...

    So now onwards to next question

    WHAT is POST? (POWER - ON Supply Test)

    well do u remember the screen where ur HDD's and CD-R/RW's and DVD-R's/RW's are recognizes,

    The screen where u get the AWARD Logo and the imeediate next screen where ur system components are listed

    welll do you see those screens

    well if u dont see these stop doin anything urself and get a professional to do the job

    if u see thses screens and the comp hangs up while loading windows, then windows may hav gone corrupt,

    also, even windows mght load but no monitor display then " DID U INSTALL ANY LATEST GARPHICS DRIVER OR DIREXT X VERSIONS)

    If u did then the software mght be faulty, in such a case ( if using win 98 )boot using a floppy and do a complete format of the partition where win98 is loaded

    if using winxp press f8 while boot up process , select option " boot using last known good config.. "

    Welll hope this solves ur problems

    Thanks i will get a prof. for this one, but can u suggest why three of my comp. in a network boot about 2-3 hours late and shows checksum error (battery already checked and replaced), this happened after i closed the PC's for about 2 months.

    It maybe a faulty memory module , what my experience says is that normally due to a loose agp card , in ur case its onboard so its irrerevant. Check and try to update the BIOS.
