;) I was upgradeing my computer with a stick of 256mb ram then when i turned on my computer it got up to the windows xp loading screen it wouldn't go away so i resarted my computer and the i got the dreaded PXE-E61 media test Failure. so i thought mabey it wasn't excepting the stick of ram i put in so i took it out and put the old one back in and it did the same thing. So i went searching on the internet to find out what was wrong. I tryed reparing it with the windows xp disk and all it does is freeze when it says "hit any key to boot from cd". I disabled network boot and still it didn't work. No matter what tryed it allways went to the black screen. :tazz: I had an old hard drive kicking around so i erased it and put it in my new one because mabey my hardrive died on me, but when i put the old one in there it did the same thing, it won't even let me format it. I'm starting to think that there something wrong with my mother board. also for some reason the fan in the power suply will start going very fast and then slowdown all the time. please help me i have run out of options what else is there for me to do?

Tazz1964 is right I never seen a psu do that so I would try a different one first.

Then try the ram in a different slot.

Then test the ram with memtest86
