[lubuntu] No Boot with More than 1 Stick of RAM

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, I recently started experiencing some issues with a lightly-upgraded AcerPower FH running Lubuntu 12.04. I had swapped out the original single 512MB memory stick with a pair of 1GB sticks (which passed Memtest+), and that all worked out pretty well for a while. Then after almost a couple months, the system stopped booting past the BIOS screen. When I pressed the power button, the screen would either show the Acer logo and then stay white with fans at full blast OR the case LEDS would light up (with fans), then everything would shut down for a few seconds, then it would reboot by (Hardware)
