my computer has a problem with the ram it keeps changing from 1024 to 512 i thought the ram was loose but i took them both out the put them back in, it worked, then it happend again i just turned the pc off this time then turned it back on and it was ok. Then i got a error with something to do with the a d and e drives i basically keep getting the same errors drive a d and e and memory change is it the hardware loose, because i do move it a lot from my office to home and its a desktop if so how do i fix this problem.

You'll have to try one thing at a time to see if it solves it, what I would initailly suggest is remove one bit of RAM, run it for a while and see what happens, if this is ok then swop them over and see what happens then. If both are ok running seperatly then I would suggest that the RAM slot on the motherboard is faulty. If not we'll have to try something else.

I agree with both Vog and Curio, multiple threads add to a problem they dont solve it

I think you already have the possable cause in moving a desktop around, the inital problem seems to be the ram and then the D/E drives.

I would reset the Ram, check the connection cables on the drives ( which may have become dislodged when you first checked the Ram )

then leave it where it is untill you can ensure that its either moving it, ( it which case it wont happen )

or start looking elsewhere for the problem.

More to the point as this is fairly new, have you spoken to Dell. you must have a waranty on it.

Its also far easier if you need to take a system to and from work to use a laptop
