I thought you just burn the ISO directly to the disk to make a boot disk :) that explains all the CDs that I trashed lol. So I use that ImgBurn program to make boot disks from ISO files?

With that mentioned, is there a way I could just use my USB flash drive so I dont have to waste a CD?

Actually Broni, they have an option for using a USB Key, the downside is that the computer must be capable of booting from a USB device (many are not) and the USB device will ONLY have this program on it, you can't store anything else on it when using it for this program.

That being said, the program imgburn is easy to use.

Download the iso.
Choose Write Image File To Disc
Open the iso file by clicking on the little folder icon and selecting the iso.
Insert the writable disc.
Make sure Verify is selected.
CLick the burn button (looks like a file with a green arrow next to it pointing to a CD).
Let it burn.
Done.

You can check it by seeing if there is a lone text file there.

Okay I think it's working now. The funny this also is that when I got there, she said it hasnt been doing it in the past day or so(after I drove an hour of course......)

I ran the RAM test on the new RAM only.. tested out fine. Cleaned out the inside of the tower real good with a can of air, and left just the 1GB in there; I took out the old RAM like you guys suggested. I havent gotten a call from her yet, so maybe thats what fixed it :).

Thanks alot guys, I really appreciate the help and advice! All of you were a big help to me!
