    A problem has been detedted and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
    If this is the first time you've seen this error screen, restart your computer. if this screen apears again follow these steps.
    Check to be sure that you have adequate space. if a driver is indentifed in the stop message disable the driver, check with the manufacture for driver updates. try changing video adapters.
    check with your hardware vendor for bios updates. disable bios memory options such as shadowing. if you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.
    Technical information:

    RAM Problem

    Hi Pentium 4!

    This can be several things.
    Run your pc with only the new chip installed.
    If it works, the chip is fine. Check that the other chips
    is PC133 aswel.
    If they are the same try cleaning the memory slots with air.

    I hope this helps.
