Initial blue screen of death is probably caused by the ram.
install original ram and see if everything is ok, next install 1 of your upgrade sticks, reboot and see what happens, if it fails use the other stick, if it still fails, sell those on e-bay and run a scan from crucial.com and see what is compatible.

Hello visit emachine here:

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/default.aspx

And select your pc model by number.

Remember to select the right model, because flashing the bios with a wrong one will destroy the mainboard.

I have newer heard that a bios upgrade was necessary to upgrade the ram.

Some mainboards do have a limit of 2gb ram, and the bios upgrade does nothing to that.

Try to clean the pc out for dust, and renew the the cooling paste between the cpu and the cooling element.

One of the ram modules could have a defect.
Try to test one module at the time.
If you get the blue screen of death, the problem is elsewhere like power supply, or harddrive.

Good luck

You can add 1GB of ram but that's it. Definately not a 2GB Stick or 4GB stick.

The splash screen with the LG Flatron logo is the monitor's splash screen not the PCs.
The machine is NOT booting up the splash screen is the monitor coming on.
Remove the 1Gb stick an see if the machine performs normally.
If it does then power it off, remove the power cord and CAREFULLY reinstall the new stick.
If it fails to boot you may have a defective memory module.
If the machine fails to boot with the new stick removed make sure you have the original memory seated properly and all cables securely attached

Remove thwe new RAM and hard drive. Does it boot to the BIOS menu? If yes, add the hard drive and do the same again then add RAM and do the same.
I suspect something does not fit in properly. Probably the RAM.
Don't forget to initialise the hard drive if trying to format it. The System disk should take care of that.

Blue Screen


OK, so I took out the added RAM, changed the internal RAM to a new 1GB stick. The machine booted, windows started, I logged on, then blue screen. I put the old internal RAM back in, changed the hard drive, same result. This test suggests that the RAM is fine as is the hard drive as the blue screen appeared with different hardware. My next step is to replace the motherboard as the appears to be the issue. I'll let you know how I get on.
