    Processor:AMD Althon 64 3000+
    RAM:1.25gb(1-1gb , 1-256mb)

    Buy a matched pair of 2-1GB memory sticks rated for your motherboard, and see if this helps

    Two rules for replacing memory, especially in more recent, 'performance' m/b's

    Either one strip or two exactly matched.

    Beware of cheap generic memory. Refer to the motherboard manufacturer site where there will be a list of approved manufacturers with specific strip serial numbers for Ram. Stick to that list or run the risk of dodgy reliability.
