    Open the case and make sure the graphics card is sitting properly in its slot. Check all connections are secure, including the connections on the monitor. Remove all peripherals (Mouse, keyboard etc.) and then boot. Test the RAM also (Boot with one stick at a time)

    As far as I know, you will have to download memory test/diagnostic software, burn it to a disc, and then boot from that disc. I have not used any memory test software so I can't recommend any, but if you Google "freeware memory test software" you might get something (read reviews first).
