  1. We ll I tried out MemTest using a bootable CD, and it didn't go how I expected it to. Most people say they let it run for hours. Mine just showed the MemTest screen for about 30 seconds, then the top half disappeared and left just the bottom. It was just the bottom of my screen in blue. Here's some information I recorded:

    Bits in Error Mask: 0001fffc
    Bits in Error - Total 15 Min 0 Max 14 Avg 87
    Max Contiguous Errors: 2

    Test
    0..... 56
    1..... 24
    2..... 40
    3..... 56
    4..... 72
    5..... 88
    6..... 104
    7..... 120
    8..... 136
    9..... 152
    10.... 168

    That's all I wrote. I'll take a picture of the screen if it helps. I don't understand how it tested everything in under a minute. Did I do something wrong, or are those all real errors? Please help!

    I have 2 sticks of 512 MB PC3200 by the way.

    Hmm.. Maybe you hav some compatibility issues?

    There are two memtest programs: Memtest86 and Memtest86+, try the latest versions of both.
