TeeQ Posted November 7, 2005 Share Posted November 7, 2005 Following are the problems encountered: Unable to completely install WindowsXP, with crashes. Unable to complete installations, or bootups, with a "Blue screen of death" (a descriptive one, not the normal centered one). File failures. WindowsXP requiring restores of files. Random reboots. Ran memtest, which showed a host of errors, but not the first scan through. Following are fixes implemented: Swapped to different harddrives, swapped to different methods (ATA-150 vs SATA). Retailer said it's not the RAM, I need to update BIOS. Updated BIOS. Sent motherboard back for repairs, which it didn't need. Finally, went out and bought a Kingston 512 stick. Every problem disappeared immediately. Retailer refuses to accept return (don't they just sometimes suck?). Here's the system specs, in case they're not listed. Asus K84N-E Deluxe, with AMD 3200+ and a Nvidia 6600+ GT video card. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
