i have a dell t series pentium 3 pc with processor speed of 500mhz, 80gb hard drive, cache ram of 512kb, system memory of 128mb, in memory bank 0 i have 128 sdram, with 2 free banks.

i bought 128mb of sdram and tryed to install it but when i do, i go into set up and it tells me it is there. when i come out of setup and the dell logo appears on the screen.

it then comes up with a mesaage saying that system32\drivers\Ntfs.sys is missing, press r to repair this. it never gets by this message.
some times this message dosent even come up and i get a blank screen.

can anyone tell me whats wrong and why my new ram wont work and how can i fix the problem.
