whats going on, wondering if anyone has any extra insight for me on a problem. new pc built a few months ago. to shorten this a bit, i ended up testing my ram with memtest86 and a windows based memtest. i cant figure out if the problem is the ram or the slots/mobo. say we have chip x and chip y and slots a1, a2, b1, b2 chip x works in all slots no errors with memtest86, yet shows an error with the windows memtest chip y works shoots 10k+ errors at the end of test 5 @ 98% on slots a1 & a2. shows no errors on slot b1 or b2. chip x in slot a1 & chip y in slot b1 (this is the dual channel configuration for the mobo) test 5 @ 98% about 3-4k errors. so basically im stuck with a: changing the chip makes a difference b: changing the slot the chip is in also makes a difference i was also getting event id 1003 but im not sure if its because of a large pagefile, that i just changed recently.
