What you need is for somebody who has some spare memory sticks of the
correct type as you need.  These can be popped into place to first of
all test whether it is indeed memory or the mobo.

Did you run Memtest?  Sorry I can't remember from the last time.  Next
if it isn't memory (assuming known good memory has been tried of
course) it would need all of the other components (graphics card, hard
drive, sound card etc) swapping over onto a spare, and again known to
be good, mobo.  That's the best way of finding out what the problem
is.  It also means that you will only be spending what you need to
spend - if anything :-)

If Peter can help out, great.  I'm willing to help out with any spare
bits I have to troubleshoot if needed.

Oh, have you tried running a Live CD?  If so what's the outcome?
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Xmas may be over but,  PLEASE DON'T drink and drive you'll make it to
the next one that way.
