    Hello,

    I have recently decided the check my RAMs for errors because of all the freeze ups and blue screens I have been having. So I decided to use two diagnostic programs in order to analyze the problems: Windiag and Memtest86. I have burned both of them to a bootable disc and tried running them on my computer, but for some reason it does not want to start them. I have also tried running a bootable USB, but the situation is even worse. The CD gets dettected in the BIOS menu, but I receive the error when the system tries to run it. After it just runs the windows normaly. But the USB does not even get detected in the BIOS. I am very puzzled with this because I have tried running both programs on my other computer and they seem to work well there. o_O If anyone has any idea what to do I would appriciate it very much.

    Regards, Jaka

    Hi, Jaka.
    Will the machine boot from any other live or bootable media. Has it ever?

    I don't think so. I mean this was the first time that I tried to boot it from some other source than hard drive.
