ArchosSecutor Posted December 6, 2006 Share Posted December 6, 2006 After much experimentation with my first ever computer build(high end gaming), I finally figured out why Windows kept missing varying files in the early stage of install after thinking it was scratched discs and bad cd drives: a bad memory stick. Tried taking out one, having only the other in B1, still had errors. Switched them, no errors, perfect load. Just to check it out more definitely, I just ran memtest86+ with both sticks in. It picked up like 30,000 errors after 2 hours and I only let it go to test 5. Then I took out the bad one and ran memtest again, no errors. Now, I was wondering why is this one stick so severely screwed up? What might cause this damage- shipping perhaps, or manufacturing defect?
