How do you do that? i downloaded ewido and scanned and it only found those cookies, and i did a memory scan too and found nothing. What anti virus prog will I use that scans on boot? and is it self explanatory? or do I have to do some steps to make it happen?

Razaille,

You mentioned the rams are way hot so go into bios Frequency/voltage control and tell me what it reads under dimm voltage ajustment.

This is how you ajust the vdimm it is the voltage to the ram don't change it like I suggested before just tell me what it is set at

Oh ok i getcha bro, ok so heres how it looks like

Frequency/ Voltage Control

Auto Detect PCI/DIMM Clk: [Enabled]
Spread Spectrum: [Enabled]
CPU Clock: [166 Mhz]

Ok the CPU Clock was the one you were talking about huh? coz thats the only one that can be increased by decimal increments.

It says:

Minimum: 166
Maximum: 199

RAM can have those problems with virus's too. That is your problem, so deal with it. Try virus scanning then write zeros to the hd and reload all ur [bleep] from disks. Use avg and ewido virus scan to catch it. I would have to say that alot of times with Ram i have though its too hot or its bad and then found out later its a virus running outside the windows file-system. please check it out NOW!

Use AVG too and make sure its fully updated then use a bootdisk to completely delete the hd, One problem to mention is virus's can but not likely, but "can" hide on the flash itself. If this does not work then its a heat problem because the 2 ram not working vs the one ram working would give me that impression. The reason the 1 ram may run fine is that the virus could have been written to effect a system with that amount of mb. but who knows what ur dealing with when you get into whacky [bleep] virus's just made to hurt ur comp.

Scrushmaster:

I'm going to have to disagree with your analysis. Most boot viruses affect hardware recognition and in this particular case I see this quite differently than you. You have gone from a boot virus to a memory resident virus, independent of of the BIOS and I don't see evidence of either.

No I was not talking about the cpu clock, the manual I download says there should be a setting for dimm voltage ajustment in Frequency/voltage control if not your bios must not have that feature.

I was thinking that if this was set to high thats what was causing the instability and the ram hot
