    been working on this pc that seemed to have suffered great damage during
    loss of power....ps no good..changed it...mobo didn't respond w/new
    ps...slipped in another mobo...Iwill vd133pl...used...system booted up,
    although everytime it booted, it would go through scandisk-due to improper
    shutdown-which wasn't true..anyhow...i've been getting blue screens during
    new installs after reformatting...changed hdd to another working one...would
    boot and after a while would come the bluescreen...i'm thinking it's either
    the mobo (which is used and might not be 100%) or the memory which is
    generic. I'm leaning more towards the memory since i've had blue screens on
    other pc's that went away when I put name brand memory in it. Wanted to
    know if anyone has had similar prob and how dealt with it...

    It has been my experience for the past couple years that generic memory
    equals failing memory. Always buy namebrand RAM with lifetime warranties and
    you won't encounter this so much.

    Tufftest has a great RAM tester.
