Not a professional, but i do side work. What i hate most is that; at our work we have a ticket support system. EVERYONE comes to my office instead of using that. And when i tell them to reboot their computer "oh i did that". I go look over, reboot it myself, and their problem is solved. I must have a magic touch?

I'll kick this off with a , I went to increase RAM in one of our Dr's pc's this weekend, moving from 4 to 16 in preparation for win 7 64 bit. And after popping the new RAM in, the OS wouldn't boot, xp 32.... The same process has worked just fine for me elsewhere... so I dunno why it was a problem on this machine... I hope the new RAM isn't f'ed up...

That weird, i thought if you had extra ram to a 32, it will still work, but the OS won't acknowledge more than 4?

Yea that's how I got it back up and running, did the same 16 gb config on an identical workstation, it should work fine. I'm 99% positive its just an OS issue that wont matter when I image it to 7 64.
