56kcrasher Posted December 6, 2004 Share Posted December 6, 2004 System Specs: Motherboard: nVidia nForce2 w/ Integrated LAN, Sound, and GeForce4 MX GPU. (Brand: AOpen AK79G-VN) Processor: AMD Athlon XP 2400+ GPU: Integrated GeForce4 MX w/ 32 MB of Shared RAM (can be changed in the BIOS). RAM: 2 Corsair VS256MB333 256MB DDR333 PC2700 Memory Sticks Case: Soyo ATX Midtower 350 Watt Power Supply OS: Windows XP Home I have posted in this forum twice before. The first time was because the RAM I had bought was defective and you guys replaced it. The second time was because I thought I had another RAM problem, it turned out to be something else and it was resolved. Well, now yesterday my computer started acting up like it did with the defective RAM. It would crash after using it for a while or opening a big program like Magix. This time, however, after it boots back up, everything in the boot sequence is all gibberish with random exclamation points everywhere and the video was flickering a lot. I decided to run MemTest86 and when it found the error, all of the DOS-like menus and options, and all of the text turned to gibberish as well, and when I restarted it, my PC would no longer boot up Windows XP Home. It sometimes displays the gibberish and it also shows vertical green lines on the screen where it performs the memory test and where it checks for bootable CDs and floppies; it sometimes flickers orange horizontal lines on those screens too. That's really all of the details I can think of. If you could reply quickly that'd be great as I have no computer at home to check it from.
