Windows would not prevent the memory slots from working so that is most likely a hardware issue.

Have you fully updated XP to SP3.

Thank you for your honesty regarding the legitimacy of the XP OS that you have, it does however mean that we cannot continue to help with this until you have a legitimate OS installed.

As per the GTG TOU;

p. The posting of links or references to warez or any other type of illegal software is strictly forbidden. By doing so you risk having your user account terminated without warning. We will NOT help anyone we suspect of having obtained their software or services illegally.

Couple of things to consider;
Do you still have the original Windows disk and product key that was installed on the system.
What version of Windows was originally installed on the system, if Vista and you still have the product key but no disk you can download a legitimate Vista ISO to use for a fresh installation of the OS.

You are welcome and like I said the memory issue is more likely to be hardware related as opposed to software.

If you do not have your own OS disk and product key consider using a free Linux OS until you are in a position to install a legit version of Windows, some Linux information here using Linux will allow you to continue using the computer and continue troubleshooting the memory problem, using the non legit XP prevents you from installing any MS updates including security updates which in turn puts you at risk of malware attack when you are on the internet.
