    Good going,
    try running at least 7 passes and see what happens. Memtest isn't 100% reliable but it's the best we have right now

    well I had a problem, I stuck in the 512, hooked the power back up, powered on just getting a long beep from the computer and it doesn't boot.

    Scooted it over and still the same result =/

    Are you talking about the same 512MB stick or the other 512MB stick?

    Looks like a dead ram stick then.

    You really need to run memtest on the 1gig stick for at least seven passes.

    You might also try moving it to another dimm slot, just in case it`s a faulty dimm.

    Regards Howard :)

    Well It had completed 8 by the time I'd gotten home, found no errors.

    Did get a crash while I was restarting though


    MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS

    Stop:0x00000044 (0x86640f40, 0x00001BBF, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

    :(


    Oh I'll go ahead and move it over to the other dimm while I'm at it

    MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS

    Stop:0x00000044

    Is normally caused by a driver.

    See HERE.

    You should be trying to update you drivers, or at least reinstalling updated drivers. I'd start with your chipset drivers. I'd install all your chipset drivers with the original manufacturers version. What I mean by that is if you have a Gigabyte motherboard based on an Intel chipset I'd install Intel's version of the drivers. The only exception I'd make would be for the IDE ATA/ATAPI drivers. I would make sure that the IDE driver was provided by Microsoft. Then I'd reinstall DirectX 9 or 10 whichever you need. Windows XP uses DirectX9 while Windows Vista uses DirectX10. I would then install my video card and sound card driver from the original chip manufacture.

    I'll figure all that out and get back to you. Thank You

    would a site like www.driveragent.com be a good site to get a membership too to help keep drivers up to date ?

    I guess I didn't update all my drivers, online scans are finding quite a few that out of date.

    Personally, I think you`re better of getting the updated drivers from the original manufacturers website. At least that way, you know they are from a bonafide source.

    I still think you have a hardware problem. Ram is my suspect, but it`s possibly other hardware that`s faulty.

    Unfortunately, it`s not always easy to diagnose which hardware is at fault.

    Disconnect anything not required to run your system.

    Leave just the psu/cpu/mobo/video card/1 stick of ram/hard drive.

    If you still have problems, then the problem lays in what`s there.

    If your system then becomes stable, then start adding one piece of hardware at a time and testing your system, until it crashes. The last thing you added will most likely be the culprit.

    If your system is still unstable when running with the bear minum, then try the following.

    Try another stick of ram.

    Check your mobo for bulging or leaking capacitors. See HERE for more info.

    Check your hard drive, using the hard drive manufacturers diagnostic utility. If you can`t find it, see this thread HERE.

    Check that your psu is putting out enough power for you system. An underpowered or failing psu can cause all manner of system crashes.

    Regards Howard :)

    thank you i'll do that , it seems to run fine while its just idle most of the time sometimes it doesn't but I'll go ahead and try that and see where that puts me.

    Just wonder why it crashes while doing some things quicker than it does if im just idle. Usually takes near an hour or more to crash idle :/

    Temps. Idle takes lots longer to warm up than under load. Just like a car.

    well i did another factory restore..and i've been using it regularly since, the crashes aren't as frequent at all..but if i start to play online poker or some other online browser game it goes pretty quick =/

    also on just idle its ran for about 3 days with just regular use for email and videos and things :S

    Can I ask you how you burned the ISO image to a CD? I couldnt do it with Roxio so I downloaded the free version of nero to try and burn the image but I dont know where to go in Neros to do that? can you give me short instructions on how to? or where I go once I open up Nero program?
    thanks

Eh I really don't remember what program it was.. I googled around =/ It wasn't nero..but it just gave me the option for burning and ISO image =/

    If I come back across it I'll be sure to let you know =/
