Im not saying your issue is ram related but i will say its most likely hardware not software , and im not thinking its your hard drive , try reseating all your hardware maybe if problem persists remove i stick of ram leaving only one stick , remove anything not needed for boot , external hard drivers , keyboard mouse etc tryu resetting bios to defaults
*sigh* Okay, thanks, I'll get started on that this evening
No, it's definitely unrelated to that problem. That problem was due to a defective HDD which was removed (and RMAed) and replaced with a different disk.
