That leads me to think maybe your prob is ram related. How is your 1GB 
installed? As 2 512MB sticks? If so, maybe one has a prob with it. Beyond 
that I'm out of ideas


My mind fell like a hailstone into the vast expanse of Brahman's ocean. 
Touching one drop of it, I melted away and became one with Brahman. This is 
wonderful indeed! Here is the ocean of Brahman, full of endless joy. How can 
I accept or reject anything? Is there anything apart or distinct from 
Brahman? Now, finally and clearly, I know that I am the atman, whose nature 
is eternal joy. I see nothing. I hear nothing. I know nothing that is 
seperate from me.
