Right now, there is no problem visible.  You are operating in single channel mode, but that's not a "problem" per se - it just means the RAM will operate a little slower.

Press F4... if you still have a problem, THEN post a screen shot.

Dear Leew;

This message aper each time that I run this PC !!! I want this message to dispear !!

Go into BIOS and disable SMART.  If that fixed the problem then your hard drive may be failing.

The following is a post from http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/107294-30-press-resume by  deltafred  

I've just swapped to another HDD on my Intel D865GLC Motherboard and got the
"Press <F4> to Resume" message. Well it bugged me, so I reset the defaults and went digging in the BIOS setup. I went to:-

Advanced/Drive Configuration and set ATA/IDE Configuration to [Legacy] from [Enhanced], Saved and rebooted.

It then gave the message :-

Primary Master Hard Disk:S.M.A.R.T. Status BAD, Backup and Replace
Press <F4> to Resume

It is an old HDD, so it could be failing, and it has only had the message since changing the HDD. I don't know if having the Enhanced option set was masking the first line of the message, but it seems feasible to me.

I then found an even older drive with Windows 95 on it, put it in and it boots fine, so it does look like it is a failing SMART drive message.

Hope this is of some use."
D865GLC is on the list of motherboards Intel published several years ago as potentially having defective Nichicon HN or HM series capacitors.
If you do have these caps then the drive controller on the mobo may be screwing up and causing SMART Errors.

Easy to check.
If you don't have Nichicon caps marked HN(M) or HM(M) then you don't have this problem.

Dear leew,

Could you please explaine the last thing that whene you said ( I then found an even older drive with Windows 95 on it, put it in and it boots fine, so it does look like it is a failing SMART drive message. )

From where and How to install that DRIVER?
There is no driver.
S.M.A.R.T is the harddrives built-in monitoring system.
