Cannot pass mem test after reboot

  1. hoping for some ideas...I was trying to clean out some unused,unwanted programs (through program manager) when suddenly it went into reboot mode

    I had not intended on rebooting until I was finished removing all programs, but to be honest I don't know what the last program was I removed before this.

    The bootup screen shows
    Main Processor, Inten Penium 4 3.0 gz <cpuid: Patch ID0000>

    which tells me that it gets hung up on the memory test.

    can anyone offer advice on what my next step is...I cannot get into xpress reovery mode,
    and when I hit F9 with the bootup the computer shuts off.

    Any ideas would be really, really appreciated.

    ** update - problem fixed ***

    While researching, the CMOS topic kept appearing, and found the following instruction

    what i did is underlined,italicised, and bolded - and this worked right away
