Hey there, hoping somebody around here might be able to help me out. We have three computers, and I was thinking I'd like to upgrade the RAM in the oldest. So I pulled open the case to see what the situation was, took the sticks out, wrote down the numbers, and replaced them in the same order/location I took them out in/from. Go to turn the computer back on...and I get this error:

1790 Disk 0 Error

So far, this is what I've done: made sure I don't have any floppy or compact discs in the drives. Powered down and restarted three times. Same thing each time.

I'd love to hear that there is a very simple solution to this problem...and that I didnt' really mess anything up. *laughs* It's an older computer, and I have opened it up and installed a burner in it in the past. I've also looked at the RAM in the past, too, with no problems.

Thanks for any help you might be able to offer!

It is report that your hard drive has an error. I would start by replacing the motherboard battery. While you are inside the case clean the dust bunnies out. A dirty computer is very likely to have problems due to heat related issues, such as rebooting, BSOD, corrupted driver, and more. You can use one of the following freeware programs to obtain the information you need on each of you computers.
