Got a PC here that keeps giving errors on Memtest (both Memtest86 and 86+). The sticks of RAM are fine as I've tested them in another working comp. I've also blown the slots with a can of compressed air but still the errors appear. with a 256MB stick of RAM I get errors at memory locations: 94.5MB and 176MB with a 512MB stick of RAM I get errors at memory locations: 53MB and 301MB How will this affect performance on this PC? Is there anything that can be done or is it just a faulty motherboard? What may have caused this? Its one of those Iqon Tesco PCs so I'm just assuming you get what you pay for!
I'll elaborate sorry. The PC already had 256MB of RAM in. When memtesting this showed errors, when I took this RAM out and put it another PC it had no errors. I'd bought another 512MB Generic DDR stick, this showed errors on the previously mentioned PC, but on my test PC it showed no errors. So it can't be a compatiblity thing as the 256MB stick came with the PC. Should have said where I got the sticks from sorry.
