Re: can't read memory
You either have corrupted settings in your BIOS Setup or your Ram is bad. Before condemming ram, you should pull the sticks and try and re seat them. Also, some older PC's require bank 1 and 3 or bank 2 and 4. Check your documentation for any order that must be followed. Finally, make sure it is not miss matched ram. (60ns, 70ns, parity, non parity, etc.)

Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems. What you can do is if you have more than one memory modules, you can boot the system with single and see. If this is due to memory leakage issue, you can find it here
Windows is holding
ram memory..........try knocking downing page files/storage not
used.......use the task manager to manage ram better.......disable the
junk? or freeramxp.load the barebones.........<<suggestions)))> solutions of the cuff...check
that the ram sticks are OK....for the boards . check the boards. for
any damage cracks/leaning caps etc.....for a system not to pass post!
well.......is the Motherboard up to it...... Or this might be: "Memory errors status is now read from the BMC.
Because this was not done previously, error status bits have piled up
in the BMC and the first time you boot with this BIOS you will probably
get a message saying all of your memory is bad (POST error 8601). To
clear his status, enter setup/advanced menu and select the 'memory
configuration' option. Enable 'memory retest' at the bottom of this
menu and you will remove the error message. 'memory retest' option will
be reset to 'Disable' in the next reboot.
"Remember to Clear
CMOS after each BIOS update. Refer to the Hardware Maintenance Manual
or Product Manual for procedures to Clear CMOS."
Hello my friend, regarding your problem do you have installed program or driver software lately before this blue screen appear? i guess the problem here is more on the memory dumping of your computer. either the latest installed software is not functioning will or u have a memory device problem either to much heat or cause by some circuit problem that made the memory device problematic. the worst case here is to replace memory but for now try to check first if the memory is running well and stay in its standard cooling temperature. Or you can reprogram your computer.
usually when installation of windows fails is from more than one reason and lets hope that ur hard drive is not damaged (contains bad sectors).
try these steps :
1- use a different windows cd and a different cd rom if u can find one.
2- change the sequense of drives by changing their jumper positions and data cables ( master, slave)
3- try to clear cmos with the jumper located usually near the mainboards battery (short it for 3 seconds)
4- try ( low-level format) to ur hard drive and reinstall windows.
if the message is still seen then your hard drive could be seriously damaged.
the blue screen flash and restard is actually a critical system message, but windows is set to restsrt the system on a system failure, if you want to read the message, start the computer and tap the "F8" key until a menu appears, one of the options will be "disable automatic restart on system failure" select this option and the next time it happens it will stay there.. but from what you are describing it is pretty evident you have bad ram, the long beeps you are hearing is the mainboard signalling a critical error, usually caused by ram, get new ram and i think you will have no problems
