Yes, I took out the old 512 and installed one new one. It gave me the "kill" thing. Then I removed
that one and installed the other 512 and it did a loop. It would start to load then loop back to
the beginning as if I'd just started the computer.
Therefore, since I can't get to the Ubuntu menu, I can't run the "memtest"
