Possible memory problem(generic single sided) DDR400 PC3200.

Ok i still can't get into windows nor re-install it keeps re-booting or getting BSOD and the message that come along with it tend to be random also bsod is random. BSOD only happens when trying to use boot floppy's to reinstall windows xp the reboot happens when i try's to load windows xp normally/safe mode.

Is there anything i can do to get into it or re-install? There's so many damn options in the bios it's confusing though iv'e tryed alot of things with no difference what so ever. I only have HD, Cd-Rom, Video Card and Memory hooked up(any anything else vital i may have forgotten).

Can you boot and run memtest86? If it is a memory problem, memtest ought to find it.

Well i started a topic in software section like yesterday i think and it has a bit more information on my problem so i'll redirect anyone reading this to it:

Windows XP Home Sp1 can boot into windows nor re-install.

EDIT: Originally i thought it to be a problem with the OS but after a few posts it has come to a discussion about the possibiity of the ram being no good. Has more information on the errors/troubles i had and such(Post at link above).
