Welcome to G2G

This could be a RAM issue.

I'm going to talk you through this one step at a time so I don't scare you! I am assuming here that this is NOT a laptop. If it is a laptop, please do not try to follow the instructions below!

First thing I need you to do is tell me how many sticks of RAM there are in the computer.
You'll need remove the side panel & have a look. In case you don't know what memory looks like, there's a link below to some so you can see what you're looking for:
Memory stick

All you need to do for now is count how many sticks you see. There will be at least one.
