Memory issue?

On startup, I get

"Memory address line failure at 00238044, read 5CDDDCDC, expecting DCDCDCDC"

When I continue, I just get:

"No physical memory is available at the location required for the Windows boot manager. The system cannot continue."

But in the day before this screen, I kept getting the Blue Screen, and the computer would keep restarting itself.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with Vista Home Premium, 2gb RAM, Pentium Dual Core 1.8ghz...

Norton couldn't find any viruses, but I don't know.....

Any help would be appreciated. I just wanna do everything I can before I have to take it in somewhere.

You can run diagnostics on the memory with the following utility. http://www.memtest86.com/

Have to burn the ISO to a CD and run it from the CD Drive.
