My aunts would not boot it would go to the safe mode choice screen and then it would restart this was right after a power outage. So I tryed to reinstall windows and it gives me a blue screen that says "insufficient memory for fastfat.sys". what would the promblem be i have tryed bolth 64mb sticks of ram that was in there and it does the same thing and i cheaked that windows would work with 64 mb and it said it would.
thanks

XP needs 128 MB, and that's not a very fun experience.

It does require 128 MB, but did it work before the power out?

fastfat.sys is a Windows ME file. What operating system is on there? That file error is usually caused by damaged RAM. Download and run memtest86, and read the knowledge base article from MS
