After I searched Net I found the Error Appear for my Bad RAM. Then I brought 1 piece 5121DDR2 RAM. Now when i start to boot I find a massage said "OC Error". I check out my COMOS Battery for 10 minutes and reset the BIOS Optimal settings. 1 days i can use my Computer normally. But after I day when i am watching DVD movie it halt and appeared:
Beginning Dump of Physical Memory
Physical Memory Dump Complete
I switch off my Computer and try to reboot but it said my system has error to remove it press 'R' after insert Windows XP CD in CDROM Drive. I tried and tried continuously to Install firstly I can Install XP and then The error appeared as same as before. Next I canít install even my OS XP. In the middle of the installation Error massage papered for "Page fault". I tried by changing my RAM in 1 or 2 RAM Socket but the problem is same. I cannot figure out where is the problem In the Mother board or on the RAM? Please help me.

download memtest86 install it to a floppy, boot the system from floppy drive with floppy in, allow it to run- 7-9 tests, will take a few hours, if errors appear, either the ram is bad, ovcd, timings are too tight, or the CPU is overclocked.
My friend had this same problem . Well it turned out that his RAM is damaged. He had one 512 DDR2 RAM. The PC worked fine when it was started windows booted properly but after using the computer for bout 15 Minutes a blue screen appeared it said "Started Dump of Physical memory" first i thought there is some error in his HDD but after we took it to a hardware store we were told that RAM is damaged, We replaced it and now everythings fine.
