My computer starts perfectly every morning. But if I install a patch or something that requires a reboot, the computer doesn't even start the BIOS. The beeps tell me that it is a memory issue. At first I had Kingston Value RAM, then I went to Kingston Hyper-X, now I have high quality Patriot DDR 4200 2x512 MB. I have tried every possible combination of that RAM, 1 stick, 2 sticks, changed slots, etc. I have an Athlon 64 3000 and a MSI K8N NeoF-4 motherboard. I'm wondering if the RAM is not the issue. Thanks for your assistance.

I think that your memory slots might be the problem, because it seems that the memory sticks are not the problem. If his is the case, you guess you will have to buy another motherboard. But before you do, be sure to check that no other parts are the cause of the problem. Do this by removing different parts and checking whether the problem presists. In addition, the fact that your computer boots perfectly every morning indicates that the memory might not be the problem. I think you should also check that your power supply is not causing the problem.
