Replaced the ram with older 256 DDR and yanked the HDD and the FDD and still the same issue.
Update 2: puts down the crack pipe.
IT IS THE RAM!!!!
IT JUST TOOK A LIL BIT TO THINK ABOUT IT
as you can see i am quite happy about this.
Update 3: Plugged everything back in, no work, pulled out floppy - it works..........In think I found the source of the issue here
