    I guess you could call me IT in my office. I'm technically a drafter, but I'm the most IT knowledgeable in the office (6 users). Had CCNA and half of a CCNP at one point, took some network and Microsoft classes, did an internship at a large financial network operations center.

    I figured out a long time ago that i can't know everything although i would like to. Google is my best resource and if i can't figure it out with some help from google, off to the vendor it is.

    Well it sounds like XP 32 bit can only handle 4 gigs of RAM so the OS probably is your problem. Time to upgrade to 7. Now I have had some issues with a machine that I upgraded to win7 32 bit so hopefully you don't run into the problems I had.

    I work IT for a school district. 10,000 pc's or so.
    I'm a level 2 tech, so im in charge of web filtering, AV, and stuff like package deployment, and things the level 1's can't fix.

    My favorite IT thing was when our email system was down and someone called and asked if we were going to send out an email letting people know it was down.

    Another one was when something was going on and google was making us put in random characters to verify we weren't a bot, and someone asked if we were going to call google and tell them to fix that. Yeah, I'll get right on that.

    I had a similar problem with a raid setting in the bios (SATA operation). When the computer was set to anything but "Legacy", it would reboot like that (XP32).

    I had a warehouse full of Dell OptiPlex towers doing the same thing after they had a ghost image dropped on them. With the BIOS set to AHCI, they'd sit there in a reboot loop all day long. Took a couple of hair pulling hours to figure that one out.

    Kinda cool to see a thread like this pop up. Didn't realize how many IT professionals are on this forum as I've been taught that our community is rather small...
