System Won't Boot! HELP!

My friend is having serious problems with his computer (motherboard mainly). Here are his system specs:

Epox 8k3a+
xp 1800+
512mb pc3200 ram
Ati rage

Here's the problem: He took the computer over to my house, so I could put in that pc3200 ram for him. The computer worked perfectly fine at my house for over a day, then he came over to pick it up yesterday. I told him I needed my ram back again for just one day so I could put together my new system with it, cuz my new ram only comes in 2 days from now. So he agreed and let me keep the ram, because he was going to try to put in his bro's 256mb Crucial pc2100 when he got home. When he got home, he called me up and said that the computer wouldnt boot with the Crucial in it, and all it did was beep, and it gave a "C1" error on the motherboard.

He came by today and installed the 512mb stick of pc3200 ram, but it still doesnt boot, beeps, and shows that C1 error. What's wrong? It was working fine like 2 days ago when it was over here at my house?? He has cleared the CMOS jumper, taken out the battery, but still nothing works and the comp doesnt boot. Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance..
