    I just installed a 512 of ram, it loaded up xp, but it wouldn't take me to my desktop. I'm running a shuttle mv43vn, pentium 4 2.0a northwood, HIS 9250, WD 60gb. What should I do?

    A few more details please?

    What did you do? did you add in a 512 stick, replace the stick you had with a 512 stick. Did you do a fresh install of the OS and it wouldnt come to the desk top, or it wouldnt boot?

    Any way it is, I would download memtest86 and make a boot floppy with it on it. Let it run through all the tests at least once. Ideally you could let it run for a day or more.

    That will at least tell you if the memory is good.
