RAM Testing

Recommended Posts

I have 4 sticks of DDR2 RAM that are probably playing up (random BSOD's, analysing the Stop Errors leads me to believe it's a RAM Issue). Have run Memtest86 on them individually and none of them are faulty, when tested individually.

Problems occur when I run them in pairs, or all four together. I've updated my Mobo BIOS to the latest version, and disconnected all of the drives, except for the CD so that I can run Memtest. I've also never had them Overclocked, and the BIOS settings are at default. Problems occur regardless of what slot they're in, and how I pair them.

 

 

Same deal.

 

Is there another Memory testing program worth trying? Is it possibly the Motherboard? I'm using an old GTX220 Graphics card in there, is it possible for it to cause an error? Lastly, could the power supply be at fault?

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

BIT Burn in Test, run the trial and see if it passes. Intel Linx also can pass / fail your setup.

Sounds like the board.

 

You got a friend with a similar board that you can test with?

Yup, the wife uses a DDR2 board, guess my weekend will be taken up by testing.
