Strange boot up problems on Compaq Presario desktop with RHEL 2.6.9xx
I am using a somewhat old Compaq Presario running
RHEL 2.6.9-34.EL. Everything was running fine till
about a week ago.
Now, each time I try to start the machine, the boot
process proceeds and then stops, with the CAPS LOCK
and the rightmost LED on the keyboard blinking. Thw
NUM LOCK LED does not light up. By trial and error,
I have found that if I pull out the DIMM cards and
re-seat them again, then try a start, everything works
fine. Could some Linux guru please suggest a remedy ?
