I recently removed memory from my computer. The problem is when I start up my computer windows xp shows an error. It says "error loading operating system". I rebooted and all I get is a blank screen that says "Rv351 P/N 113-AO3522-103 BIOS". I have a ATI Radeon 9550 AGP Graphics Card AMD Athlon XP 1000+. I don't know much about computers please help! email me at e-mail address removed, i need my computer up and running asap

I had one pair of memory plugged in my computer, i lent one to someone, now i am using one, after a while the computer started showing weird errors, at first it was working fine, but then windows xp started freezing, i tried to reboot, nothing happened, i resetted the cmos, it worked fine for about an hour, but eventually froze up again, then later on it showed "error loading operating system", when i rebooted it showed a bios message: "Rv351 P/N 113-AO3522-103 BIOS" i did some research and found out that "RV351" has soemething to do with ati radeon graphic cards..

When you cleared the CMOS, you set the BIOS to default settings. Open Device Manager (right click "My Computer", click on the "Hardware" tab, and then on the "Device Manager" button). Are there any yellow ? or ! displayed next to any devices?

How much memory are you now running on the machine?

Sorry...you can't start the machine, can you.

Try booting into Safe Mode: To do this, start the machine and tap the F8 key during boot up. At the Safe Mode options screen, select Safe Mode from the options listed and press "Enter". Does the machine start?
