Memory test failure

Recommended Posts

I have been getting random reboots, so I checked my memory.


I made a boot disk with Windows Memory Diagnostic program and ran the test.

The standard test showed slot 'A0' was failing all tests (MATS+, INVC, LRAND, Stride6, WMATS+, and WINVC) with 40 errors. The standard test showed slot 'A2' had no errors.


So, I removed the RAM from slot 'A2' and retested slot 'A0' with the 'bad stick'; the following are the standard testing results from one pass:

MATS+ ..... 3 errors

INVC ........ 2 errors

LRAND ...... 1 error

Stride6 ..... 1 error

WMATS+ ... 16 errors

WINVC ...... 32 errors

All tests failed.


I removed the bad stick from slot 'A0' and replaced it with the other stick (same type - came together too). Running the same test for this other stick, I came up with 0 errors. I ran the extended version of the test to check more thoroughly and came up with 0 errors.
