    Hi

    Athlon 2.4
    Nvidia EP-8ra3i mb
    Kingston ram 512
    PSU model LC-B300ATX.
    matrox graphics.
    pulsar soundcard.

    Installed ram x 1gig stick everything gave up.Blue screens- Error codes pointed to ram. At this time comp wouldnt boot giving a two tone beep with initial mb postcode of c1 then ff on halt and no boot whatsoever!Tried another brand corsair 2 x 512 but it was same ,2 x Kingston no go but reduced to 512 now works. Now and again the tower will still stop and two tone beep no boot but have found reset button starts it every time after iniial halt.Reflashed ram with same latest version,reset cmos jumpers. Now the floppy has given up two weeks on,tried replacement and its not the floppy drive. Are all these problems related? PSU or MB. Thanks for any help, you know what these things are like, IM crying now.
