Hi, thanks for taking the time to look, :)

recently purchased a 512mb of ram now have 1gb of ram, since its been installed the computer is a little bit slower and internet keeps crashing. A window pops up saying send error report yes or no? this happens at twice every half an hour!

I also installed a dvd re-writer but have not installed the software for it but it works fine! it got to a point where it was annoying me so much that ive rebooted my computer to my factory settings as if it was new!

With the help of :whistling: crustyoldbloke :blink: from geeks to go, he has helped me install many reg cleaners millwall cleaners and anti spyware, I did a final HJT log and he said its not 100% but very close he cannot see anything wrong with computer suggested that it was the harddrive on its way out but wasnt sure so reccommened I post it in this forrum,

ive now taken out the 512 ram i installed and its only done it the once! could it be dodgy ram? could it be my harddrive? it only happened when I installed the new ram and dvd writer ......any help would be gratefully recevied. :help:


many thanks jay!!!

There is also another wonderful tool from Microsoft, called Windows Memory Diagnostic, which is available free HERE.

Faulty RAM has broken all of our hearts at one time or another. :whistling:

Best of luck,
