i'm not sure what to do. when i turn on my comp it starts to boot and enters the memory test it will start running the test and keeps running it over and over. two options come up at the bootom of the screen 1) DEL to enter the bios or 2) ESC to skip memory test. if i choose DEL the bios comes up and locks up . if i choose skip the test the test stops and locks up . in both cases, the comp sits locked up for a minute or so and then shuts down. HELP!!! i don't know what is causing this :tazz:

Welcome to Geeks to Go. How old is this system? You might want to start by replacing the motherboard battery.
