I was able to solve the problem. As noted I previously upgraded the BIOS. I then tested memory with Ultimate Boot Disk. While memory passed I noted a strange thing, it showed only 1512 GB of memory while running the tests.
I shut down the computer. I took out both memory chips. I then put 1 in 1 slot, and rebooted the computer. The computer worked.
I shut down again, and took that memory chip out. I then put the other memory chip in a different slot, and rebooted the computer. The computer worked.
I then put the 1st memory chip back into its slot, and rebooted the computer. Now I can see 3.48 GB usable out of 4 GB. Much better.
