    If you are asking about the errors, no it is not normal and indicates your ram is toast. A computer can still function with toasty ram and have wierd issues like you described. Try another stick of ram in your board with memtest86+ and if it mimics the errors on the old stick then the memory controller may be at fault.
    When was the last time you cleaned out the inside of the machine?

    No it does not necessarily mean that anything is "toast". It could just be that the memory is not recieving the correct voltage to run properly (raise the voltage if possible) or is just incompatible with the mainboard.

    Okay My DVD seems to be dead...:(( It didn't boot the WinXP cd(which is bootable).
    I checked my RAM, it has 2 modules, 100Mhz and 133 Mhz , the speed is set to 133Mhz,one of them is overclocked. Will this cause errors?
    I cleaned the inside some 2 months ago.

    It would have been good to be told this when you 1st posted but yes that PC100 could be causing a prob though unless we know these sort of details in the 1st place then a fix just takes that much longer (I did tell you about the DVD's most likely prob earlier but then I'm not a system builder/repairer for nothing).
