Windows 7: computer sluggish after bios set to default

Hi,

I done the Memtest overnight and it found errors within the fist 6 minutes of it running.
So I tested each stick of ram seperate and I think I have found the faulty ram stick so just running with one stick of ram and my computer is working much faster than it was before.

Not quite sure if i can buy another stick of ram to pair up with the one I have got or I might be better off buying the set as it would be less less hassle.

thanks very much for all your help it was much appreciated.

Good diagnosis. You got it.

If you can afford it, it is always better to buy a matched set of RAM. Not that it is necessary, just, as you said, it avoids potential hassles with mix and match sticks.

Ok cheers,

I'll keep that in mind when I get round to buying the memory
