While booting up I get UMB upper limit segment address F186. Run configuration utility. Then gives a choice of F1 to continue booting or F2 to enter Setup. Is this a bad memory chip? or how can I fix the problem.

It could well be a BAD memory chip, or one that needs to be reseated.

I would start with option 2.

Also , memory is fairly cheap now for standard DIMM SDRAM ( about $20 for 128 MB ), so if you need a quick fix, this could be it.

Other issues could be  a failing motherboard/CPU Fan/ or other hardware problem.

I hope this helps !
