Have I got a RAM problem?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, so i'm having some problems with runnng 3Dmark06...basically it keeps freezing, sometimes the screens go blank and i have to reset.. Just wondering if it's a ram problem or something else?

I undertook a number of tests to try and discover if it was the RAM that was causing the problems

1 . 2 . 3 . 4.
A N N . N N . N . NY.
B Y . N . NYYYN . NN.

A and B relate to the RAM module

the numbers relate to the memory slot 1= slot A1 2 = slot A2 etc etc....

The Y/N relate to wehther or not it ran 3dmark06 without crashing...y= yes..n = no.....

You may notice a random amount of Ns and Ys...this is because i tried the test a number of times for each slot....some more than others on slot 3 module B i managed to get 3 scores in a row before the 4th crashed..


i'm thinking because the results are so random its not a RAM problem? the PSU is brand new to replace the old one (stil only 2 weeks old) as i thought it wasnt powerful enough...

Currently just running one GPU, have tried both GPUs and the results are the same so that rules them out

If anybody has any idea please help

cheers

Odd. However to fully make sure your RAM isnt bad i would test it using Memtest here :http://www.memtest86.com/

Also making sure you have the latest G-card and Chipset drivers can really help.
