    Windows 2000 computer with Intel 700+MHz cpu Via chipset
    Award Modular bios v6.00PGN 12/21/2000

    On bootup the memory count changed, but at logon it just freezes or a physical memory dump error appears.

    I added same amount of ram to other workstations and the upgrade worked without failure.

    Itried reapiring the OS on 1 workstation, it solved the problem. I tried repairing the OS on another OS with the same specs, at logon it still freezes.

    Ady ideas will be greatly appreciated

    See if it boots up to Safe Mode and if it does it might be a memory conflict between the physical memory address space and a device in the system. Are all of the PC's of the same specs as far as hardware? what is the make and model of the network card. also check the BIOS versions between a PC that works and one that doesn't.

    Download MemTest86 and run a few passes with the new memory installed. It could be an issue with the MB memory socket, the MB itself, or the memory.
