    Can you give the complete message and when does it pop up, just on start up or while using the computer? Charlie

    Only when the computer starts up. It loads the new ram and gives a erorr becouse its not the old 128 mb ram. After that the i get the f1 f10 thing.

    I'm still not sure exactly what the question is. It shouldn't matter if you changed the RAM if the new RAM is the correct type and speed. Try running chkdsk /f (note the space between the k and / Click start, run, enter chkdsk /f then hit enter. It will ask if you want to run it on restart, hit Y for yes, then reboot. It will run on reboot. See if that helps. Charlie
