The PC booted up fine and I ran everest to see if it would pick up the new memory.. which it did.
I shut the PC down to put the other new memory in the 1st slot and restarted.
Here is where the problem occurred.
I restarted the computer. The XP logo appeared and then the blue screen like usual. Then the computer reboots. It then goes through the same process again...and again...and again.
I would usually be able to muddle my way through simple things , and the harder I need assistance. Not having the computer actualy on ... I have no idea !!
