Hiya. I would like to do a test on the memory that i have which is 512mb in 2x256 sticks but do not have a clue as to how to go about it have seen previous threads mentioning about memtest but looked at them and might as well be in double dutch to me !! have had a previous threadclick here and have the computer going ok as my brother downloaded all the up todate drivers but have still had the odd crashes(5 since sunday evening 25th february) but nothing like what i previously had.
Anyway could someone please help me as to explain how to do the test and have the patience and guide me the process if i get stuck which i know doubt will do.!!
Hi, you say "the only thing that is different is monitor and accessories and power supply" - does this mean that you are talking about a Laptop as opposed to a Desktop PC? If it is a Laptop then I would strongly suspect that the Power supply is on the way out, and would advise trying it with a different Power Supply - from what you said I assume that your brother used a different Power Supply, and with him it did not crash.
LoL technotiger, replied on my other thread to you! can't get hold of this thread thing as makes my head spin!! i do apologise as i received the same comment on both threads! but closed the other one due to having both open which i thought would cause major confusion!
Hi, in your other thread you said that your brother used a different Power Supply - surely you meant a different Power (Mains) Lead. If I am correct, then can you try it yourself with a different Power Lead?
(To have used a different Power Supply would have meant quite a lot of stripping out from your desktop and putting another Power Supply in.)
