Memory detected/Memory failure on Dell Dimension PC

\015 I have a Dell Dimension 2400 PC.\302\240\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012The other day I installed Vista Business successfully after playing a lot with the display driver for Intel 82845g on-board graphics. When I restarted the system it worked fine.\302\240\015\012after the first few updates (including the infamous reliability update) and restarts, when I left the computer idle, and checked back later, it went into standy mode, with no display whatsoever on the monitor.\015\012\015\012later i found out that the problem was with the memory modules/memory failure, since the diagnostic lights a and b were amber and c and d were green.\015\012\015\012as suggested in the manual, I removed the RAM modules on there (512 mb) tried many combinations, including an older RAM module that came with the computer, with no success.\015\012\015\012the diagnostic lights still glow the same way\015\012\015\012here is my configuration\015\012\015\012Intel pentium 4 1.6 gHz\015\012Intel on-board 82845 g display\015\012DDR RAM 512 mb (2 modules)\015\012chipset- Intel 845g series\015\012\015\012wondering if somebody can provide a solution as I am out of all ideas at the moment\015\012\015\012\015\012thanks in advance\015\012\015\012:)\015\012\015

So basically the computer does not start. Because I am not sure that is what you are saying.
\015\012
\015\012I think from my understanding it is an issue with vista rather than with the computer. Somehow the new driver has put your computer in sleep mode. The computer of friend of mine starts by itself.
\015\012
\015\012Another I want to say that the memory cards are fragile they can go bad. The way you touch them it is important.
