    Welcome to the Community. It looks like a RAM fault. I suggest you reseat the memory on your system. Use the below link for help.

  • Thanks Royan.

    "No can do". Problem and blinking lights still persists.

    Could it be the CMOS battery or most feared, motherboard problem?

    It happened many months ago and after sometime it just went away and now . . .

    Thanks again.

  • Hi Stomp_rat,

    You can try one memory at a time in your system to see if that works, to check if its just one memory stick that is faulty. Try another memory stick, if still no go its a motherboard failure.

    Thank you
