I have several Gateway E2600s pc's that are running windows xp.
The computers will sporadically not boot. Sometimes they will freeze during POST other times no video at all and I will get a constant beep. If I reseat the memory the pc will boot, this will solve the problem for a few days and then it will start again. I have tested the RAM in each pc and it always passes the memory test (Windows Memory Diagnostic).
Any help that anyone can give is greatly appreciated.

Check all the power connections, make sure everything is firm.check everything and make sure it's all in place correctly, nothing is hanging out just a bit.But from the sounds of it you didn't handle the hardware properly, leading to this issue.

The RAM passes all memory tests if something happened while handling it, wouldn't it not pass memory test. If the RAM gets reseated the PC's work for awhile. All connections are solid.
