I checked, and the memory modules are as identical as they could be.
They are both Samsung PC2 5300E-555-12-G3 2GB modules.

I tried leaving the computer for 15 minutes
at the point where it tells me to press F1 or F2,
but the boot did not proceed.

I'm quite baffled by this.
I see nothing in the BIOS, or in the F2 config,
that could possibly be relevant.

I tried swapping the modules round,
but that had no effect.

Any suggestions or advice gratefully received.
