Does anyone know of any utilities you can download that can run checks on memory modules? I have had a few problems lately which suggest that one of my sticks maybe on the blink. Thanks people

memtest86.
I believe it best to let it run overnight to do its job

Norton tells me that my mem check failed as ther was an error detected @ 580033456.
What does this mean and what is the answer, please anyone.
Thanks

this is the address at which the memory failed

If one mem stick installed renew it.

If more than one take all out put in one stick at once in slot 0. Run mem test

the stick that fails is the faulty one renew it.

To make sure you buy a new one compatible with the rest check at crucial.com
