I have also used memtest, although it is handy, i find it quite un-reliable in any systems using DDR-2.. i have had completely dead sticks of DDR-2 ram that memtest has said are fine.. you need to work on a process of elimination, if different ram still has the same problem, go on to the next possible cause

My desktop frequantaly booting what can i do

When you say frequently rebooting; Is it randomly rebooting without warning? Do you get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error message? Or does the PC just reboot without any error's other than windows was not shutdown properly?

MOST random reboot issues are caused by Power issues;

-Failing Power Supply
-Blown Capacitors on the motherboard
-Insufficient power to run the system.

These would be a good place to start to troubleshoot if you do not get a Blue Screen Error Message.

-Failing Hard Drive can cause this issue as well but is usually acompanied by a Blue Screen Error of sorts.

-Failing RAM again usually accompanied by a Blue Screen Error.

You can test for failing hardware, by using Hiren's Boot Disk for diagnostic tests on your Hard Drive or Ram.

Hiren's Boot CD 15.2 -

You will want to run memtest X86 to test the Ram or Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test or SeaTools to test your hard drive.

This BootCD is not for the typical end user whom may not know there way around the features and options this Tech CD provides.

You will want to burn the Hirens Boot.ISO file to a CD (Burn Image Option) using any of your favorite flavors of burn software.

Hope this helps.

You can also download these diagnostic test individually such as memtest x86 and Hitachi's DFT or SeaTools independently from the Boot CD just by doing a google search. This might be the easier way to perform these tests for people who aren't very savvy with boot CD's.

Memtest fails with what message? How much ram do you have in it? When you go to the BIOS screen, what is showing for the amount of RAM and does that match what you think you have? Can you take the ram out and reseat it? Does that help the situation any?

Gigabyte GA880GMUD2H with Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 Ram when switched on 4 long beeps pause 4 long beeps etc etc no video no USB power no keyboard or HDD activity

These beeps are for graphics card error or, in case of an external one, not inserted properly. You don't clarify what vga do you use so in case of an external check the potitioning. I suggest you all the checks to be done without hard disk connected. Check that the bios boots normally and you have video signal and after this plug the hard disk.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

I have a k7mnf-64 socket 462 when I turn on the computer I get an alarm and a red light on the motherboard I have checked ram and every thing else and the only way to stop the alarm is to pull main power,...

"I have checked ram and every thing else" (sic) When you say everything else, I presume you mean with No HD, No DVD, NO "Other" cards in slots, No USB, & just a monitor connected? If yes to all those, then yes I would think that the MB has developed a Fault. The "Red Light" this LED usually signals that the MB is receiving good power, it is NOT a "Fault Light". have you REPLACED the RAM with new ones? You say "Alarm" what exactly is this alarm sound?

you may have incompatible ram. You can try running Memtest on the application that will test the PC ablility to read and write to all the channel and sectors of memory. Also did you try both slots?

I think the power supply is bad. the light on the front of tower is yellow and makes no sound when the computer is turned on. all three fans run.

No i don't think the power supply gone bad, as your decription says light on the front side is yellow and all the fans are running. This may due to RAM has been not been inserted properly or other hardware problems. Check all the connections of the hardware will resolve your problem.

Revert back for more assistance.

Recently i bought msi motherboard and um um havin aproblem that it is hanging if i use more software,or play games just stucks stilled screen and um just restarting. um havin 2gb ddr2 ram...

Those are the hardest problems to troubleshoot the only way to do it is the first run a diagnostic on the memory and hard drive using a DOS utility. Test the memory with a software called Memtest and the Hard drive with the manufacturer software, you can get them on a boot cd called UBCD (Ultimate boot cd) that you can get here.

UBCD (for memtest let it go for a couple of loops, it can take quite a while depending on your configuration)

After that if all tested good the rest of the parts like Power Supply, Motherboard and graphic card you have to basically try another one to test them. Unless you have a power supply tester to test the power supply.

My windows suddenly shows "beginning memory dump"

It sounds like you might having a problem with RAM. A couple of questions for you:
1. Are you running any particular type of application before getting the blue screen?
2. Have you recently upgraded your PC with more RAM?
3. Also how much RAM do you have? You need at least a minimum of 1 gig of RAM to efficiently run Vista...even though this might not be causing the problem, but it does help overall performance/

Another thing that you can try is looking in the Event Viewer and then tell me any error messages that you see. To get to the event viewer...Click on Start --> Run --> type in eventvwr.msc and press enter. Once in the event viewer look under System and see if there are any error's that occurred around the time the blue screen came up.

Just in case that its RAM...try this downloading this tool (memtest )to diagnose any issues with RAM -->

Try cleaning the slots for RAM and the RAM itself with eraser. Remove newly installed hardware first and then put back the RAM to its place..make sure it perfectly fits..then try booting your pc again.

Memory write/read error

Down load memtest from here

and follow instructions to make a bootable iso. This will test the ram to see if it is producing errors at all.

Should be able to run it for an hour without even 1 error. Any at all and ram is faulty/not setup correctly.

Post back with results and we will take from there :)
