    My desktop computer just went south on me. Hopefully it's the video card and not the HD.

    You did back up your data, right?

    Wow, got real lucky. The diagnostic LED's on the front of my desktop read 3-4 which is a memory failure.

    Opened it up and pulled out the original el cheapo 512 MB stick in slot 1. I have 4 sticks in there. Pressed the start button and it WORKS !!!!

    There was about a 25% chance of getting it right the first time.:cool:

    As CitizenofDreams said: Did you back up your data?
