BIOS found my memory but when WinXP is booting, its tell me "windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system\config\system you can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original CD-ROM select 'r; at the first screen to start repair" so I press key and computer boot and then installation start, black screen and text "setup is inspectig your computer hardware..." and then come blue windows setup screen "file \i386\ntkrnlmp.exe could not loaded. the error code is 7. setup cannot continue. press any key to exit". I have tried so many variation. putting sincle chip both slots in mother board that it looks that they work... I have problem get them work together. so they work indevidually.

I am fighting with this problem now three days. I really preciate if somebody has some good advises :-)

Bad memory or incompatable memory can very often corrupt data. Some systems don't like high density memory or 2 clock memory, AMD based systems seem to be the most picky, where the same memory that caused problems in an Athlon XP system works fine in an Intel P4 system. Since it is an HP you have an even higher chance of memory issues.
