Hi all,

I recently began experiencing a serious issue with my desktop.
I discussed it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic459260.html/page__p__2751341__fromsearch__1#entry2751341

There is was suggested that it was RAM related.

I have 2x1G RAM modules.

I have removed each, one at a time, allowing each to occupy both slots A and B, but no changes.

The screen is completely covered in multiple bars of multi colors as soon as the tower is powered up. Not even a bios screen.

Additionally, the computer fails to load windows. I know this, as my computer fails to connect to the home network, which it is configured to do on startup.
This makes my files inaccessible.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Additional suggestion is on the original thread. Sorry for not being able to get back at you sooner. Busy times as usual. :o
