okay i started my computer and it kept restarting(15times yes i counted!!). It kept on restarting at the login page where i put in my password on my username. But before it restarts it goes to a blue screen saying "Lack of physical memory" and other stuff i couldnt right it down cause it restarted right away.

I have 2x512mb kingston ram. I thought one of em died so i tried one stick at a time. I still get the message from both sticks. I put em back in started it up it restarted 2 times...then on the 3rd time it worked o.0

plz tell me how to fix this :/

Hi. Are there any beep codes? Have you tried starting in Safe Mode? If not, try it. If you don't know how to enter Safe Mode, let us know.

Ok so it beeps once. That's what I'm looking for. Now, is it a long or short beep? (Beeps symbolize different codes the computer give us). Also, Safe Mode will help the system load only what is necessary and not all the extra stuff. Start your system and press F8 numerous times. You should then see an option menu with three options. Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Last Known Good Configuration. First, we'll try last Known Good Config. Press down on your arrow keys so that it is selected and press enter. Let it run its course, and see if it helps. If not, try Safe Mode.

So this just started a day or so ago? Have you made any changes to the system recently? How is Safe Mode working?
