"Once installed and configured, memory seldom causes problems. When problems do occur, they may be as obvious as a failed RAM check at boot or as subtle as a few corrupted bits in a datafile. The usual symptom of memory problems is a kernel panic under Linux or a blue-screen crash under Windows. Unfortunately, that occurs so often with Windows that it's of little use as a diagnostic aid. When troubleshooting memory problems, always do the following:
When You Have Not Added Memory If you suspect memory problems but have not added or reconfigured memory (or been inside the case), it's unlikely that the memory itself is causing the problem. Memory does simply die sometimes, and may be killed by electrical surges, but this is uncommon because the PC power supply itself does a good job of isolating memory and other system components from electrical damage. The most likely problem is a failing power supply. Try one or both of the following:
If you haven't enough banks to allow binary elimination, the best solution is to remove the modules, wrap them if possible in a static-safe bag (the pink plastic that most components arrive in), and take them to a local computer store that has a memory tester.
MS-DOS, Windows 3.X, and Windows 9X do not stress memory. If you install Windows NT/2000/XP or Linux, memory errors may appear on a PC that seemed stable. People often therefore assume that they did something while installing the new OS to cause the errors, but that is almost never the case. Such errors almost always indicate a real problem with physical memory. The memory was defective all along, but the more forgiving OS simply ignored the problem. "
3. check the processor - is in good condition go to Check your Motherboard..
