Today I decided to upgrade my machine as it was getting a little laggy... I purchased 2 gig of the exact same ram I was already using Geil DDR2... I turned off my machine installed both sticks of ram and booted up... It sat on the Black Windows XP screen for ages and ages... I thought it was dead so I held the reset when it rebooted it gave me start in safe mode option, I tried this but it froze again... So now im thinking I have 2 dodgy sticks of ram... I took the ram out.. I then rebooted again.. same thing happens... but because I was trying to ask a mate on MSN for advice (using my laptop) I left it on the XP screen.. after 10 minutes it slowly went on... so now I turn it back off and put the new ram back in.. Turn it on and same thing 10 minutes and the it finally turns on.. computer doesnt feel right once its on either.. jerks a lot and occasionally freezes...
I have tried finding out how to install XP over my copy of my XP without Formatting as I have to much stuff Installed which I dont want to loose...
when browsing the net after typing in my problem I came across this site and something it told some1 else to try
"Click "Start", then "Run", type "eventvwr.msc", and press Enter. "
I did this.. and here is what it found
Error 15/10/2008 14:02:14 Service Control Manager None 7023 N/A
I then double clicked 1 of the many errors
this is what I find
The Aplication management Service Terminated with the following error.. The specified Module could not be found...
when I followed the Link it game me it says Symbolic name: EVENT_SERVICE_EXIT_FAILED
I cant count how many errors there are, there is just so many, quite a few errors even happen twice 3 times in the same second...
it appears it would explain why i cant boot properly But I have no idea how to fix it..
any help would be greatly fully received
on a side note this is the 1st pc I have Built from scratch myself... so I am on a learning curve right now
