Question about AMD Athlon 64bit -3000+ Multimedia Computer PC Desktop

1 Answer

PC lives it's own life

After upgrading a memory from halfGb to 2 Gb, my PC is living it's own life and restarting whenever it wants to do so. It is annoying me very much as I do plenty of complicated work ( watch mechanics and designs) on my PC and can't afford to loose all the job after a few hours work. And it happens frequently.
Even after restarting itself, it freezes (80% of 100%) when the logon sound is played (there is no sound at all!) and I have to restart it by pushing RESTART button on the tower (case).
Any solutions?
P.S. I'm complete idiot regarding to PCs, so, please explain step by step as you would do for a 5year old kid.:)))

    Yes, the ram stick(s) was exactly for my PC. I've 2 of them (1Gb each). Anyway I'm giving you the FixYa, 'coz I know how complicated all the stuff is.

    So, what should I do if there is 2 ramstickis?
    I do remember running the MemTest quite a long ago, and it did not helped at all(saying everything is fine).
