tried starting with PNY memory stick in B slot but computer wouldn't even boot up lights came on for about 5 seconds then went out and nothing changed sticks and would boot with the MUSE but screen froze in black so had to shut down. So then went ahead and put both in with the muse in the B slot and the PNY in the A slot, but got an error message on black screen and couldn't read it fast enough said something about running with diminished memory, and when you check properties on MY Computer shows only 256. However I did download and run your utility and it recognizes both sticks of memory. I have attached the report in HTML , hope that will work . Now though I went to reboot and I am back to what started causing all these problems way back. I have the black windows screen with the following message
Window could not start because of the folloing file is missing or corrupt?
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM
Select r at the first screen to start repair
OH MY back to square one when it comes up with that message you cannot even reinstall repair or do anything with the windows disk in the cdrom drive it says cannot proceed with installation there is a file missing.
I Just took out the MUSE stick in slot B put the PNY in slot A and the computer just booted with a message that the memory had changed hit F1 which I did and it is running normal so I am strongly thinking something wrong with the B Slot
what do you think?
