Bad dimm?


Recommended Posts

System works fine until I start gaming. AAO, GRAW, Ravenshield all play for about 15-20 minutes, freeze, BSOD for 1-2 seconds and then system reboots.


Any ideas? I'm not a tech guru so I'm open to suggestions. :confused:


Ran memtest86 3.2 in this order:

1: both dimms 1 and 2 in m/b channels A1 and A2 (errors, test 7)

2: dimm 1 in channel A1 (no errors)

3: dimm 2 in channel A1 (no errors)

4: dimm 1 in channel A2 (no errors)

5: dimm 2 in channel A2 (errors out the kazoo in test 5 and 7) :eek:
