i had a freeze while i had the two 1gb rams in the yellow slots. on the restart that cmos message appeared again. now i will do the steps you told me for the cmos problem and the hard reset. in case another freeze appears i will check the 2 rams in the black slots, and then the 2gb one on each slot.

i reseted the bios so the cmos is cleared and did the hard reset on the devices. now i am using all my rams in the slots they used to be. in case of a freeze, i will first check the 2 1gb rams in the black slots and then the 2gb ram in every slot.

Have you moved the RAM around?

no, i checked my pc with all my rams placed in the slots they used to be, so i can se if it was a ram problem. now i will test the set of 1gb rams in the black slots, and then the 2gb ram in all 4 slots. i will inform you when i do this

I am doubting it is the RAM at this point. More likely it is a motherboard, CMOS, graphics card, or PSU issue. I suspect the first two given the CMOS error you get. You could try replacing the CMOS battery first since that is a very small expense.

If you open up the system, you should be able to find the CMOS battery type by removing the battery from the motherboard. Just get the battery model number and visit a local PC store or electronics store. They should have one in stock that suits your needs.
