Can anyone help. I have a friends pc to have a look at, and am far far from being an expert. The problem is, every time the pc boots up, it loads everything up to the windows desktop, then apparently shute itself down and reboots. Have tried this quite a few times with the same result. One thing I have noticed is the screen that shows your processor and memory isnt behaving as it should. The memory counter used to scroll through the amount of memory it has, I think testing it, then it would proceed to load the drivers. The memory counter however is now static, showing the 256mb memory and not budging. I am guessing the memory is faulty and there is not enough memory to start windows causing the pc to reboot every time. Any pointers from you experts out there would be very welcome. I am stuck in as much as I have no compatible memory to replace it with to test. Any ideas greatly welcome/appreciated..
