You should leave it overnight, a thorough run would be 8-12 hours.

It bought up loads of errors - but was still running past 16 hours.. I guess that's enough evidence to pass on to the store though...

Ok, that's the evidence. You can run this memory test under Windows - as a prooftest if you want:

Thanks for your support on this.

I have to 'buy' the new ram - then they will refund me when I return the faulty ram. fingers crossed this will sort. I ran MemTest for windows and stopped it on 50% as it came up with 5 errors - which is enough for me..

thanks again, I'll report back in a few days when the new ram is installed and let you know if we can mark this as solved

New memory is installed. Mem test passed ok and the computer isn't crashing.

But, I have new problems. If you feel this should be moved to another section, please do do, or let me know the best way to post.

While I had the bad ram - I updated the drivers for intel hd audio and also for the intel graphics.

Now the pc will wake up after sleeping, but the monitor stays asleep and when I physically turn it on, it says, no signal.

I have to manually restart the computer. It tries to resume windows - but never makes it. If I choose to delete the resume and boot normally, it boots fine.

I decided to roll back the intel drivers, but that option is greyed out. I then tried to system restore - but I get a dialogue box telling me that the drive is corrupted and I can't restore. It recomends I check/repair the disk on startup.. i did. It took a long time and then booted as normal.

But nothing has changed, ie roll back greyed out, still not waking up monitor and still can't system restore.

Any ideas ?

All sorted for now


Looks like the new ram has reenabled system restore.
Have restored to a few days ago and the sleep problem has gone.

Hopefully that's that.

Thanks for advice.
