Hello,

When I turned on my computer today, I was greeted by a series of long beeps and my PC would not boot. I looked up a list of beep codes and it appears that there is a "memory error."

My PC was running fine yesterday and I did not change anything or install any new software. Since receiving the error, I have shifted the RAM around and cleared the CMOS, but it still gives the error. Oddly enough, it has booted a couple times, but I was never able to get past the log in screen.

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Here's a list of my specs:
OS: Windows Vista
Motherboard: Foxconn ELA LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX
RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) F2-8500CL6D-4GBNQ
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 Wolfdale 2.8GHz LGA 775 65W BX80571E7400
Power supply: COOLMAX CUG-700B 700W ATX12V v2.3
Video card: XFX GX260NADBF GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16
Hard drive: HITACHI Deskstar P7K500 HDP725050GLA360 (0A35415) 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
CD/DVD drive: LITE-ON 20X DVD±R IDE DH-20A4P-04

Did you pull out one of the sticks so you could find out if one is bad?

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

I did not. I'll try that when I get home from work.

Thanks!

I tried checking if one of the RAM sticks was the problem by removing one and seeing if it would boot. I did not receive the memory error anymore, but it would freeze a few seconds after hitting the loading screen for Vista. I also tried booting with both RAM sticks again and am not longer getting the memory error, but it is still freezing on the loading screen.

Booting into safe mode is working, however. Is there anyway to diagnose why it will not let me boot into normal mode from safe mode?
