How did you check the memory stick?
What has happened with the system lately? (new/changed/removed hardware or software) Any voltage surges or lightning strikes. We you in the case prior to this happening (and did you use an anti-static wrist strap and unplug the system from the wall)?
I always change the BIOS battery when I'm inside the case - it's too easy and too cheap not to do it "just in case".
This is eerily similar to my last problem - and it was because I didn't unplug the system from the wall. I recall touching the memory chip before I realized this - but didn't feel anything. I tried resetting the CMOS, tried a nother vid card (didn't do the hard drive's tho').
I finally bit the bullet (and used it to justify upgrading to 2 gB of RAM
and got more RAM. Put it in and everything worked just fine! But it was a very expensive lesson to learn!
