pc boots & says memory error

Specs: Windows XP, 512
So I am trying to fix a old Dell 4400 for a friend who can not afford me to build a new pc for them. He has a Dell 4400 and after it starts up but before the Windows screen comes on I get an error code saying there is a memory error and to contact Dell support. Has anyone ever been through this before ? Any advice what to do ? I

It would seem there's a problem with the memory. Do you have the memory out or change it at all? Any beeps at startup or diagnostics lights?

What I get is "A,B,and C are green lights and D is a Yellow Light" and the owners manual says :

"See "Contacting Dell" in the Owner's Manual for instructions on obtaining technical assistance"

I will get a new 512mb of ram and also install a spare psu that I just got for another dell "4700". Other wise I have tried to move the two sticks of ram around and still get the same lights and not boot up. Thanks
