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.

If you have Linux and it no longer boots properly after upgrading your RAM, I don’t think the problem is related to the memory because 2 GB RAM is such a small amount to make Linux unable to support it. Let’s take Red Hat Enterprise Linux an example. RHEL version 3 supports up to 64 GB RAM for 32-bit architectures and doubles it for 64-bit (128 GB).

While RHEL version 6 can support up to 16 GB for 32-bit and 3 TB / 64 TB for 64-bit. If Microsoft Windows is booting fine, I guess you should try reinstalling Linux on your computer. The problem is probably coming from the installation of the operating system. If you are dual-booting your computer between Microsoft Windows and Linux, make sure you are doing it right.

I already tried making a dual-boot system before but all operating systems I’ve installed are Microsoft Windows. I haven’t actually tried it on different platforms. To help you do it properly, go to How to Dual-Boot Linux and Windows.
