Solid State Member
i have a problrm with my 1 gig of ram that i brought, when i inserted the ram in the computer it booted as normal when it come to loading up the interface in windows it just showed a blue screen with writing and then restarts the computer. i tried the ram in another computer and it worked so i now its nto the ram. ive tried changing the ram modules but still no success when i load bios it only shows in slott 1 32mb and doesnt show the other ram module i think it could only be 2 things it could be the bios but ive checked for updates and got the latest 1 or it could be the processor any help will be thankfull

Yea, I would make sure you have the correct type of ram. Check the voltages and timings from the manufacturer and make sure they match in the bios.

It would help if you posted ur comp specs as well as the ram specs.
