The PI845Z is, unfortunately, limited to 2GB RAM max (DDR 266/333 RAM). As for the hard drive, it does not seem to support SATA hard drives, but if you can find a 500Gb IDE hard drive that should be fine :)
According to SiS® official document, SiS® 748 chipset has limitation DDR supports: CPU at FSB 200MHz mode, it will NOT support DDR400 CPU at FSB 333MHz mode, it will NOT support DDR200 CPU at FSB 400MHz mode, it will NOT support DDR200/DDR266 Depends on chipset http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=K7S8XE
Got another mouse you can try.
Another thing you should to is get online on another computer (of course), find and download the floppy version of Memtest86+ (not memtest86), unzip it and get it started. It will produce a bootable memory test diskette.
If you don't have a floppy drive, download the .iso version of the program and burn the .iso to a CD via Nero (or whatever you have).
The diskette or the CD cannot be read by Windows, so don't even try.
Simply boot up the problem computer using the diskette/cd and it will automatically check for memory problems.
If you see ANYTHING in Red, then you have a RAM problem.
Let me know what happens.
