ok because im in school doing this i dont have the time to read everyones posts, but the first thing that came to my mind is that the motherboard fried when mine fried a while back it did something similar (gave one beep) and the fan started for a secound and then everything seemed to be dead if you dont have it hooked up to a surge protector and had a blackout its possible that fried it, or its possible that youve had a couple of brown outs (small periods of insufficient power) ive never actually heard of a specific case where one fried a motherboard, but when mine fried i was talking to several different people, including some techs and one told me how a brown out could fry it but like i said i dont have time to read everyone else's posts, so if youve already ruled out a fried mobo then just disregard this post

Hehe sorry I didn't state clearly, the ram didn't fry, but it had corrupted memory more like it. The blue screening all make sense. The blue screening was caused by bad ram. I've had the ram for a year and it has given me no problem. Oh well, gives me a chance to get 1gb upgrade. However the dead ram was a "Legend" so avoid that brand if you can ;)

Oh man, heard of dick smith in New Zealand? Everything they sell are legend. I don't think I'll be buying anymore hardware from them from now on.

Yeah dude, Dick Smith are everywhere in Aus. I get most of my PC games from their, they are quite cheap. But would never buy ram or computer hardware from their.
