|4 Months ago, I upgraded my computer by adding a singular 1GB Branded RAM stick into it, making it 256MB + 1024MB (1GB). Since now, it's been working perfectly during the months.|
Before I took out the 1GB RAM stick from my motherboard, the computer used to reboot/restart it's self randomly every 5-10 minutes. During that time period, the graphics on the monitor would get worse.
I've taken out the 1GB RAM stick, leaving me with 256MB RAM. Everything seems to work fine, no random rebooting/restarting, it's all perfect. But, I'm trying to get my 1GB RAM stick to work with my computer again. Every time I put the 1GB RAM stick back in, it no longer boots up any more, instead it hangs. After passing the Windows XP loading screen, and before it saying "Welcome" on Windows XP, it just stays as a blank, black screen, with my cursor in the middle of the screen, which I can not move. Once I take out my 1GB RAM stick, it works perfectly again, but I need the 1GB RAM Stick to work.
How would I go about solving the RAM stick's problem, if it is the RAM stick? It's branded, so anything on those lines shouldn't really be an issue.
I'm running under:
Windows XP SP3.
Integrated Graphics Card.
