There's not a lot we can do for you without a model/model number of your PC. But it tells you on the screen what you have to do. You'll have to to, download the latest BIOS file for your model, copy it to a disk or floppy, then boot off it to install. The instructions should be on the BIOS download page.

Remove the memory/ram, clean the contacts & try one stick at a time.

Clean the contacts with an pencil eraser & try it again. May need cleaning or reseating. If multi sticks, try just one stick to test.

Dear all,
We have tried Johnw's solution but it didn't work. We didn't have much to practice on it for some reasons.
As far as concern to the PC, it has sold out. So I can not select Best Answer.

What to do with this post Admin?

Anyway thanks everyone for the support.
