    I am in advanced options now. I don’t even see a thing labeled “Boot from USB”.

    Hi,
    Best to take it in somewhere and let a professional flash the bios or you could end up with a large paperweight for your trouble
    Yes a removable device is a flash drive formatted to fat32 the devices default format.
    I’ve already updated the BIOS to the latest version as @Bree said to do. Just trying to run the Memtest86 now. But, it’s not letting me boot from the USB flash drive.

    There are trial and error steps in the BIOS.
    If you are not comfortable in the bios then you can either bring it to a nearby computer store or use Memtest86.
    The memory testing software have different algorithms. We regularly use Memtest86+ version 5.01.
    Sometimes there are conflicting results so we consistently use Memtest86+ version 5.01.

    I will do that. I would have to see how much they would charge me since I am on a fixed income here.

    Well, I didn't actually say you 'should', I just told you 'how' - you already seemed to be determined to do it

    Probably can't do any harm though, but we now know it wasn't related to your problems.

    This is the RAM testing software that we don't regularly use but you can use it to test the RAM.
    It is often easier to use.
    Different software algorithms can produce different results.
    We had had an OP use memtest which had different results from memtest86+ version 5.01.
    One had a pass and the other a fail. (one had errors and the other had no errors).
    This is the memtest software: MemTest86 - Official Site of the x86 Memory Testing Tool

    I apologize for the misunderstanding, @Bree.
