Do I understand correctly that you had errors with two stick in, with one specific stick also and now the latest test with the OTHER stick is ok?

And your computer does not start but DID do a correct memtest on that one stick that is in now?

What is the size of the one stick that works well?

To help us out, could you fill in system spec's like described in post 4 here:https://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...tml#post256049

I ran the test with both sticks in, got a bunch of errors. Took one stick out and then ran it again with no errors. Reinstalled windows and now everything works fine.

It is a gskill 2gb memory stick.


I updated my system specs.

Thanks for the help.
