The bios recognizes the sticks and I am able to load Windows Xp home edition in safe mode but in regular mode the the computer hangs on the welcome screen. What is the problem? Why won't Windows start? help please

This suggests a driver problem. Try downloading the lates drivers for
your hardware from the manufacturer's web page.

If you want to check the
memory, there are free programs to test memory here:

You have to leave the programs running for several hours.

Good luck
