    so i got new ram, because i had bad ram before and i haven't started my computer up yet because i am waiting on another part to ship, but what do i have to go through to get my computer to run again, do i have to reinstall windows? And i heard a rumor that new ram may not fix old ram errors on windows xp. Is there any truth to that? Or will my computer work perfectly fine now? Thanks.

    I guess it depends on how badly the bad RAM messed up your installation of Windows.
    If it meant that you were still able to get into Windows and it would just lock up or kick you out of running programs every once in a while then you will not need to reinstall. If you were unable to get into Windows before, then it is possible that you will need to reinstall Windows. If I were you I would just start it up and see what happens.

    if it booted up regularly, just kicked you out. that means that there is no damage to the hard drive files. only when the programs accessed the bad sectors of memory on the RAM. thus, replacing teh ram with good chips SHOULD take care of all your problems. but like jimbo said, boot it up and see.
