    If you noticed in your own post SDRAM has DRAM in it.
    It's telling you that your RAM is not installed correctly or it could be dead.

    How did you clean it?

    Cleaning reccomendations VACUME/Air Can only.
    You can also use Isopropal Alcohol (Pretty safe on electronics)
    Never scrub with anything more abrasive then cotton.

    I reccomend only cleaning with vacume and air cans.

    You can get some good SDRAM on
    This board will use the PC 133, besides PC100 costs more anyway, and is slower Random Access Memory err RAM.

    Hope this helps

    it was only cleaned with a compressed air can and a vacume but i took out the old video card and put in a gforce 4 and it works now.
