Oddly enough the wireless keyboard failure is a Windows problem. You can use
it to get into the BIOS without any trouble but then it dies when XP goes
through its start up process.

I'll never learn!
Still searching for fewer pauses and less blurries, I fell for the
temptation to install the latest drivers. Nvidia drivers are supposed tp
insta;ll without the need to remove earlier versions.
Anyway, I installed the latest, whose name I'm glad to have forgotten.
Result, in the middle of the bootup there was the merest flash of a
dreaded blue screen, failure, another attempt etc. In the absence of
Windows I can't see how to do a Restore, to get me out of the mire. Next
problem, I can't accept an offer to start up in safe mode, Most Recent,
etc, 'cos a wireless keyboard doesn't work until the system has booted
up......
 Eventually dug out a wired keyboard and managed to accet the offer of
starting in the most recent effective mode. That got me in, so I've now
restored to yesterday's settings and hope it's going to be OK.

Meanwhile I'd spent a couple of hours removing and re inserting the two
new memory sticks. They are now found by everything but Sandra, which
tells me two slots are empty, when I can clearly see they are not. Just
can't get the staff, these days.
