RAM (memory) test:


This will require memtest on a bootable CD or USB stick.



Gary, and maybe it has something to do with my board, but 5.01 won't run right on mine. It will run 1 pass then stop. The screen stays there but the test just quits working and will do nothing. But I do like that it will use all cores on some of the tests. I have to use 4.20.

Also, Jack there are 2 tests memtest 86 and memtest86+. The one with the + is the one you want to use and the one Gary's link goes to. For usb use the usb installer version . (http://www.memtest.org/)

Yes, the 5.01 does lock up/freeze for me too on the Sandy and Ivy bridges. It will complete to test 5 or 6 and stop.

I finally found, downloaded, unziped, and burned memory test 5.0.
Running it now and it's on test 6 with zero errors.

I agree but I don't know what he can do about it.
If Asus sends back a board all I can do is install it and go through the head aches I going through. Prove it no good and do another RMA again.

You gave him the responsibility to get your stuff and said he's always done a great job. I certainly would not be willing to eat $300-$400 for someone else's mistake.
I did with a crap ASrock board, but I fought them for 6 months getting3, that's 3 bad boards, all different ones. I even called the numerous times and they swore they tested it. I called them liars and always take the time to tell people about how crappy they are.

Put up a fight at least. Especially with whoever said the board won't run 2400 RAM, he's wrong.

I haven't given up.
Just gets annoying when I buy quality hardware that is matched to the best of my ability and it always the same problem part.
Still running PassMark MemTest86 5.0 (3:10) no errors.

From here. A Pro and a Free version.
Read all the info. Sounded good to me.

MemTest86 - Download now!

It's the only one I found that would boot and run.

Looking for opinions on this PC.
My desktop PC is getting on in years - it's a 3GHz P4 I bought back in '05 or so. I've got a good NVidia card in it and 3G of RAM, and there's still quite a bit it can do, but it really is starting to cause me some headaches. I'm in the market for a new desktop, and in my shopping around, I've come...

i end up removing deleting/uninstalling Eset Smart security as it really damaged my PC hugely (i got 4 pcs with 2 of them with that product and with windows 7 it damaged a lot like my bios) so i'm going to use microsoft security essentials since its anti virus spyware malware and malwarebytes...
