Specs: Windows XP
when i install windows xp on my gateway computer it shuts off right when the installing is loading.. at first my computer wouldnt load windows because of some unknown problem to me, but my friend opened the side and took out two 3 inch boards and replaced one back.. the other is no good.. but now my pc is able to get to the bios settings and actually stay on(for the moment).. but now whe n i try to install a windows xp pro cd .. it starts automatically and begins the loading of files.. but after about five or so mins. when it trys to complete the install , ( go to another setup review im thinking).. its shuts off.. i believe it actually say on the screen that windows is opening.... but thats where im at .. i keep tryn ot over and over but it always shuts off at that point.

How much functioning RAM is left? You came oh-so-close to telling us, but then held this essential info back... What is the labeled capacity of the 3-inch stick, and how much of it is recognized in the Bios?
