I upgraded my PC’s RAM to 2 GB. Ever since,
Windows on my HD boots fine, but Linux fails to boot or hangs.
How can I fix this?
LINUX of your version does not seem to be able to identify the type of RAM you have installed. I would prefer a latest version of the Linux and the other LINUX from the market or the freely downloadable. The LIVE disk if works, should work well with any system configuration for which it is programmed. The LINUX you have must be old enough. The updates are on continuously, producing the new and newer version. As such the issue may be raised in the forums of the LINUX type you are using for the purpose of extending the work to the so called LINUX environment.
