From what I can remember, I think this problem started when I woke up one day and turned on my computer. When I turned my monitor on it was just at the RGB message in the middle of the screen, as in a standby/sleep mode. I turned my computer on a few more times and even tried unplugging the computer. Nothing work, and after calling the University Res Tech, I decided to take out each Ram card at a time and turn on my computer. This let my computer turned on with a faded color on the screen. When I put backed the one Ram card it turned on fully. I figured this was a temporary problem, or a sign that I need to get a new Ram card. When I went on my account it showed another problem which was that my Microsoft Window 7 was not a genuine copy. The next time I was on my computer and up to this point I have never seen the computer say that this Window 7 was not a genuine copy. There was also a lot of CPU being taken from something other than my user account on the task manager, but I don't think it shows where it's going when I click on show processes from all users. Whenever I turn on my computer up to the point I open task manager the computer would lag like crazy. The final problem would be opening when I open Firefox, which would first show like a red block on the bottom and top of the screen and white in the middle. I'm not convince that all of these problems are related to the one Ram card that I have. Any idea?
