Hi

Welcome to Free PC Help.

Make sure the RAM is correctly seated. If you have 2 RAM sticks, try with only one at a time.

Also go to start -> Run and type cmd and then type chkdsk /r (note space between k and /).

You can also see this:WINDOWS STOP MESSAGES

Hi

That code is to run a scan disk on the hard drive of the computer.
And this is easier: Go start -> run and type chkdsk /r (note space between k and /).

The RAM stick is the physical memory of the computer. If you dont feel comfortable working inside the computer i do not recommend doing anything in the inside of the computer.
