Well I have finally managed after lots of trouble to install windows xp & finally have my pc up & running. I now have 2x512mb & have run memtest which completed showing no errors. My computer still isn't running right though
I would presume it would be twice as fast with the extra mem but it isn't. When I had 1x512mb I could watch videos on youtube with no problems now it keeps pausing. So what could the problem be?
Also I'm back to my old hard drive which shows that couldn't have been the problem to begin with. While I was trying to install xp on the new hard drive the pc kept freezing so I would have to reboot. Each time I deleted the partition & created a new one, then would reformat the last time something failed & when I tried to reboot a red box with 'disk reading error' appeared. So is the hard drive fixable or have I killed it?
