Having same amount of errors in memtest with 2 different mobo's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay so I got a computer here that was acting strange so after some trouble shooting ended up running memtest 4.0a on this system. They both use DDR RAM. The original board is:
Asus P4P800-VM (With a Celeron D)
HIS Radeon 9250 AGP

I've tried all 4 RAM slots all occupied plus 1 a piece with 8 different RAM sticks and I ALWAYS get between 282-288 errors. I figured it was the memory controller so I swapped it out with a newer board: Asus P4SD-LA (With a Pentium 4) I needed to use the same chipset with AGP because the install is proprietary and I can't reinstall it on a newer system. I used 8 different RAM sticks with both slots filled or just 1 and it also gets between 282-288 errors every time. Some of the RAM sticks are brand new out of the box. I tried a different power supply, CD drive, memtest disc all with the same results. It just seems to consistent for both memory controllers to be bad, anyone have any ideas?

Maybe your memtest executable got corrupted?

Thanks for the reply. Maybe. I'll try a different one tomorrow at work. Still open for any other ideas!
