Ok, thought I would give an update to the situation. I went into work, and borrowed 4 sticks of 512MB RAM, and it turns out that with them in, it will boot just fine. So problem solved in terms of that, but herein lies another issue, the computer is only reading 1.5GB, not 2 like it should. Does this mean that the slots could be working at half capacity, or maybe the motherboard battery is dead? I'm asking about the battery because when I booted it up, an error came up saying the time has been reset back to a really old date.
