I bought this computer about 2 years ago and it's run great. About 2
months ago though when I tried to start it up it hung up in the boot
process. Every attempt was the same result...hang part way threw the
boot.. I pulled the memory and visually inspected them then tried
booting it with only one.. It booted up fine... so I swapped them
expecting the other stick to be bad but it booted fine as well... I
swapped there positions a few times and seemed to work in either dim
slot... but when ever I put both sticks in the same time it hangs on
boot or crashes about 5 min after it's up and running. I'm running Win
XP home. First any idea why it would be doing this?.. and second short
of sending into be repaired would I be able to just go get a single 512
stick and run it on that since I had 2 256's in before and thats what I
need min to be able to do the work I use it for without it being slow

Don't take it in, it is the motherboard or the RAM. RAM is far cheaper.
Just replace it with new RAM. If that isn't it, it needs a new
motherboard. Do that yourself if you can. As that will cost 200 bucks
plus just for a used one.
