Hey this really doesnt deal with xp but it has xp on it lol.

What is happening about 85% when i turn on the Dell Optiplex GX 260 (P4 1.8, 256MB, 40GB), it will start the post and then fails within about 1-2secs and will reboot. The Diag LEDs are telling me that is it a memory error, but i have changed the ram and cpu for verifcation, but still the same thing. Will a power supply be a posible cuase of this? Or is my mobo F***ED? Anywho hope some one can help and give me some ideas.

Thx

If there are two pieces of RAM you could always remove one and see if this issue persists. If it does, swap the pieces and try again. This would identify which piece of RAM is defective, if any.

If you care to test the memory:

Microsoft Memory Diagnostic
Memtest86

Btw, where is Sydney, NS?
