...bad RAM perhaps?

How many DIMM modules are there on your motherboard? If there are more than one you could try removing one, or shifting them about the slots.

...though, if you're system worked fine before with this RAM configuration, then I wouldn't think that RAM is to blame .

...Maybe the BIOS CMOS is corrupt.

clear NVRAM, like I suggested as well as going bare minimum. You may want to reseat the bare minimum, but important to go bare minium. No cd/dvd, floppy, JUST a HDD (primary, no secondary). Make sure you've read and tried all of what I listed above. NVRAM is also called clearing CMOS, if you've tried all the above (try different memory mods and reseat them and the proc) and nothing works, sounds like a bad MBD. For a last ditch effort, you could try running with the MBD out of the case on a non static surface to ensure it isn't grounding to the chasis/case.

If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
