Default Re: what the heck?

run a memtest (download under my sig) on your RAM to see if its error free, then open up the PC and check if everything is seated properly
If for some reason it wont POST read the POST TroubleShooting Guide (also under my sig)
P3 Setup- Intel 1.0ghz , 512Mb SDRAM , ATI 9200 128MB, 2x 40GB HD, Asus CUSL-LV
