You say "I tried everything", but I don't see ordering new primers in there. Primers that 
were thawed too many times, or even kept in -20 too long (so rumors say) are degrading, 
which with RAPD would mean stop working. I have personal epxeriance with 20bp primers 
going unspecific on me, and heard of someone who ran a sample of the primers on a 
sequencing gel and got a nice ladder, which wasn't there with the new primers.
