Memtest86 freezes on test #8 every time


Recommended Posts

I just bought 1GB RAM (VS1GSDS333) to update my old IBM T42 2373 laptop. After installing my new RAM the machine will freeze within 1-2 minutes of booting up. When I remove the RAM the machine operates normally.


While using memtest86 to test the RAM I'm finding that it too freezes, specifically in test #8 (happens as quick as 1 minute in, and as long as ~20). If I remove the new RAM the test runs smoothly.


Laptop (all stock, no add-ons until I bought this RAM):

IBM T42 (#2373)

Pentium M 1.7 Ghz


ATI Mobility Radeon 9600



Any suggestions? I've submitted for an RMA, but wanted to see if there is something else I should consider.
