jlevesque Posted February 25, 2005 Share Posted February 25, 2005 Well, my problems started about a month ago. Everything worked great before this. I had random system crashes/reboots, applications quit for no apparent reason, and games would slow to the point of unplayable. Thinking maybe my operating system needed to be re-installed, I proceeded to reformat my computer. Upon re-installing Windows XP Pro, I received many error messages related to not being to find files on the CD. Every time I tried it was a different file. Now this is a near new CD I was installing from with no scratches. After that didn't work I attempted to install Windows 2000. Upon trying to copy the files to the hard drive during setup I received I/O error messages and "not able to read memory address <0x0000:0000>"(unfortunately I didn’t write down the memory address). That’s the point I knew it was the RAM. I had old memory lying around and put it in my system. I installed windows XP flawlessly. After getting my system setup again, I put the faulty memory back in and ran a game. Within 5 min the game crashed to my desktop and another error message "not able to read memory address <0x0000:0000>", I clicked the "OK" button and system rebooted. Put the old stuff back in and computer works again. Therefore I would like to request an RMA #. System Specs Below. Thanks.
