Look here to find out how to open it and remove all but one ram stick and try that?

Should be some case screws on the back that, once removed, will let you slide the top and sides of the computer off the chassis, which the front is stuck to. That's just general advice, should work for a lot of storebought computers (e.g. HP).
With the case open, assuming you can reach both the power supply and the mobo, turn off the switch in the back by where it plugs in but do not unplug it. Without moving, touch the power supply. This grounds you. You move, touch the PSU again before touching anything else.
The RAM sticks have locks on either end, push them down to unlock the stick. Pull the RAM stick straight out. Put it in a static bag if you can find one, if not, wrap it in a paper towel (it's not a conductor at least) and drop it in a ziploc bag. Take it to a computer shop, they should be able to tell you what kind of RAM it is. Buy more (preferably on Newegg.com, they're the cheapest) and see if it works. Assuming it is a RAM problem. A POST problem like that can mean CPU, GPU, RAM, or mobo, I think.
You can always take the whole computer to a shop.
I have two Corsair 512MB DDR PC3200 sticks I'm not using. Real nice with heat spreaders and activity lights. Wasn't looking to get rid of them so fast, but I'm sure I can't get much (if anything) for them online. I think they're 184-pin DIMMs but I'm not sure. If they can help you, maybe we can work something out. (Shipping plus the cost of a cheap lunch perhaps?)
Thanks so much!!!
Although it was my dad that did all the work :/
He pretty much did everything your described above, so thanks
Guess the RAM was just a little dusty or something.
What kind of phone did you write this on?
Insert original signature here with Greasemonkey Script.
Does him writing this on a (smart)phone explain all the line breaks? (Maybe a mod can clean that up a bit?)
I didn't write this on a phone :/
I wrote it on DSi
Sorry about the line breaks, it didn't look that bad from the DSi :/
Clearly it's poetry, hence the line breaks. Any fool can see that.
Or an extended haiku
But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
