Please clarify -

A If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.

NOTE Keep in mind, the manual check listed above is always superior to the software check, listed below. DO NOT proceed with memtest, if you can go with option A

B. If you have only one RAM stick installed...

...run memtest...

:confused:

Do you know if you have more then one memory module installed?
If only one then proceed with running the memtest86 program diagnostics.

If more then one then take one out and try booting with just one. After testing to see if any issue arises or not then switch with the module you took out and test system again.

I tried to download a scanner to see about what RAM i had, and got hijacked by Delta !!!!!

When i last reinstalled after bugs, one of the downloads i had to do, i pressed the wrong button and got Babylon!

Scanned with spybot again. Searched and removed all files again.

Hopefully no damage longterm?

It was beyond my comprehension. But also everything i did try didnt work. Either cos the computer is too old now to be supported or because of the problems causing the blue screen errors.

I am not trying anything anymore myself.
