Ddr sdram for northgate stac2217l?

My daughter was having a major probelm with the desktop locking up all the time. I am coming in way after the fact and she didn't write any error messages down for me. this computer ahs been sitting for a while and she wants to resurect the beast as she done't have money for a new one.

My thoughts in looking at the specs is she needs to upgrade her RAM as 256 ram is not enough to run old windows xp and the interet etc.

where is a good place to get the required ram?

What's your problem? Virus Help

That particular virus infection is a SERIOUS pain in the ****. Save yourself a major headache and bring it to a computer shop that specializes in virus/malware removal for a set price of $50 - $100. I've personally removed that virus from several computers and it's very tricky, and great at morphing and hiding code in several places. Not to mention the fact that it will eventually delete all your icons on the desktop and start menu.

Says missing file root>\system32\hal.dll

Sometimes we look for the difficult when the solution is right in front of you.

I got the error message after flashing my AMD64 BIOS. Tried rebooting, then a repair, and the problem wouldn't go away. But, if I set the boot sequence up for CDROM first, then HDD, and let the bootup go WITHOUT hitting any key to boot from the CD, Windows would start.

Tried the randall's solution. No luck. Tried copying Hal.dll to system32 still no luck.

Then by accident, I hit F8 during the initial boot. I selected my master 1 and got through.

Went into setup and found that my HDD boot sequence had my slave as the first boot device. End of probelm.

So, here is what was going on. I had upgraded to a larger hard drive, and kept the original as a slave. (Just to have access to files that I might have forgotten about. While I had erased the files on D, I didn't remove the system files. So, when I tried to boot, it was the system on D drive that would try to boot but all the necessary files needed to boot that disk had been removed.

But, randall's solution link is a good one to know. It helped me solve a similiar probelm on another computer where I had two operation systems to choose from, but only one installed.

Replace all four oxgen seners on my ford expedition and even clear the codes 1151 and po155 with code scanner but still comes back on 5.4 4x4

You could have dirty injectors, a vacuum leak, faulty MAF sensor and/or a clogged catalytic converter. Most likely your 02 sensors were fine and didn't need to be replaced. Just because you have an sensor fault code does not mean the sensor is bad, in fact the majority of the time it's working just fine.
