    Ok first, Remove all additional Sticks of ram that have been installed now, The original 256 Stick set that aside so you know which one it is. Also, take a look at it, does it say Pc100 or PC133 anywhere on it? Now put the original 256 stick and put it back in and try and start your computer. Let me if it starts or not please, Im very interested in this problem.

Did you discharge yourself of static electricity before touching the memory? Apparently static electricity can destroy memory. Also make sure the memory is correctly seated in the slot. Also check to see that everything inside the computer is properly connected. I have gone inside computers and have accidentally nudged something loose and as a result the unit would not work. Try a completely different memory stick than the ones you have now. These things are what I would investigate first.

Shut down hp pavillion desk top

This is an XP machine, which is no longer supported. I recommend backing up your personal data asap, and plan on moving to a newer machine and Operating Sysytem. If the machine won't boot, and you have important files on it, you could purchase a USB Hard Drive Adaptor, pull out the hard drive, and copy any important files to another machine. Good luck.

My hp pavilion 513n has completely stopped working! I need help!

Start the computer, and keep pressing F8 until you get a "boot" menu -- white text on a black screen.
Select "safe mode with command-line", and see if Windows will start.
If it does, enter 'CHKDSK C: /F' to get Windows to check the integrity of the file-system.

Then, find a friend with a genuine Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM. Boot from that disk, and choose "repair", and see if the boot-process can "repair" your installed copy.
