1L 3S is usually bad RAM.
I think some BIOS will do 1L 3S 3S 1L as well.
Try reseating the RAM & Video card (if there is one).This signature intentionally left blank.

Maybe a bad RAM slot. Does it have more than one? Try the RAM in a different slot if it does.This signature intentionally left blank.

tried all slots with all available ram. Honestly i think the whole dang thing is screwed up. im just gonna reccomend him getting a new MOBO and stuff i found some pretty good parts on newegg total was 142 that should break his bank too much

It could just be a flaky BIOS chip as well. As old as it is, give it a good burial and move on.
Here it is over at HP btw.This signature intentionally left blank.
