|I was recently given an HP Pavilion a6244n PC running Windows Vista. I was told there was a problem, and when I tried to start it, I got a short beep, then a long beep, indicating a memory issue. I removed one of the memory boards; no beeps. I then switched it with another, and still no beeps, and the PC started up. Everything looked OK for about 20-30 minutes (I was not connected, so I tried out Solitaire), then the CPU crashed (BSOD), and would not reboot. I tried the self-repair, and the last known working config, but no change. I ran some diagnostics, and the tests began OK, but stopped by itself. When looking at the log, it says that " c:\windows\system32\ntdll.dll is corrupt "|
I did not receive any disks, and little documentation with the machine.
