How much RAM?
After reading some of the other posts that mention this issue I've started swapping my ram modules around.
Initially I thought I had 384, but I think one of the modules was failing: I'd started with 2x128 + 1x256 (I know it doesn't add up... but Windows was working OK: is that normal?)
The computer wouldn't even get into boot mode with just the 256 module in it: so it's definitely gone.
But I've now tried with each of the other two 128's both individually and together, without much luck.
I've now got Memtest86+ chugging througth one of the modules: it's been going now for nearly 4.5 hours over 10 passes without an error. How long is it meant to go??
From reading the other posts, am I right in saying that 96M of memory is about the minimum and that 128 should be plenty?
Also: is this definitely a memory thing? Not a USB Stick thing? Or what other type of thing could it be? (I was thinking that the CD version may work, but if it's the same programme it shouldn't make a difference??)
