Hi everyone
I'm new to this, so bear with me. I get a single bleep when booting up. Info tells me that I have "bad memory" I use WinXP Pro. This problem is new. So what is "bad memory". Cheers

You need to change the bad memory module, if you have 2 or more SDRAM/DDR (depending on your mobo) modules take them out leaving one installed and try and reboot. If your PC successfully boots then you've identified the bad memory module(s), if you still get the beep keep swapping till you find a good module.

You'll have to buy some replacement memory but it's better to confirm that this is what the problem is so you don't waste any money on parts you don't need.
