Windows 7: BSODs, Freezes, Wrong POST Beep

07 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 7 64 bit

Yea I have downloaded the latest ASUS PCprobe. Looks like the RAM is faulty then. I'll run memtest today. It still doesn't explain why I get a wrong post beep, my internet dies randomly and I cant access BIOS. Getting the those errors when I use other RAM too.

EDIT: took around 5 minutes running memtest and 1 red error popped up. Not the first time I've run memtest. Last time I ran it I recieved a few errors. One week later there were no errors.

How long should I run the test? I'm thinking of testing my old RAM too.

Memtest is not 100% accurate, the results must be looked at with an eye on the overall system.
For example, problems with the slot's on the mobo and resemble memory errors.
Also, broken traces on the mobo can be affected by heat - either working when hot and not when cold, or vice versa.

Repeated tests of each stick should give you and idea of which sticks are good. Test that stick(s) in each slot overnight to see what results you get.
