Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1420nx (SR1420NXPS69AA) PC Desktop
By default your RAM should reset every time you restart your computer and all of the memory should return to the system. If this is not the case I suggest defragmenting your ram.
If you are using windows Vista I suggest inserting your OS DVD into the drive, rebooting, and running the memory diagnostic tool.
If you are not running Vista you will have to download a program such as RAM Def 2.6 Xtreme to defragment the memory for you.

RAM is volatile, so you can not reset it. When the computer is turned off - Your rams memory is erased, completely cleared of any data.
Sounds more like a hardware issue. First thing I'd look at, power supply. but if your computer does start, try going in to safe mode.
From start tap you F8 key till you see a screen that shows safe mode - I do Safe Mode with Networking. In this mode your desktop might be a bit smaller - make temp adjustments.. If the issue doesn't ever effect you while in safe mode - then you have a virus. From what info you have given, sounds like a power issue or some other hardware issue.. Hope this helps.
