    boot into SAFE MODE using F8

    let it configure

    run ->cmd /k chkdsk /f

    when that completes
    run->cmd /k SFC /SCANNOW

    i can't run windows in safe mode because it freezes the same way it freezes when i shut down, just before i press the yes button to go into safe mode...........but if i run in normal mode it boots...........:mad:

    your RAM problem.Replace a new one, or you can use eraser to "rub" the RAM pins(Both sides). See wheather it's work or not.

    it wasn't the RAM, it was the HDD.................i've used another computer to do the chkdsk and it found an error in the file system.................thanks for the tip..........but what could cause this error?.....?

    usual suspects are maltreatment (eg: freezing leads to force power off)
    or loss of A/C power
