lilsassy Posted November 12, 2005 Share Posted November 12, 2005 On April 6, 2005 I purchased a 1GB kit of 2 512mb DDR400 (PC 3200) RAM. During the course of troubleshooting a reboot problem, I decided to test my memory. I tried to run MemTest86, but it won't run. My computer reboots every time it starts to access the disk. I know it's not the disk because it runs just fine in my trusty old Dell PII machine. So I ran MemTest (not 86) from a CD and it started finding errors right away. I pulled the second stick out of Bank 2 and tested the first stick in Bank 1. It found 11 errors in 6 out of 12 passes. I pulled that stick out and placed the stick from Bank 2 into Bank 1 and ran MemTest. It found no errors in 12 passes. Can I apply for an RMA on the stick that is failing the tests?
