Ram?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i cant seem to find a topic on RAM so i'm gona post here..i think my RAM is whats causing my system to freeze sometimes..it does recover after a few seconds but to be honest i wouldnt expect a 10,000rpm hdd to stop when right clicking on recycle bin to delete an item i guess it is the RAM i have heard many stories about crucial not being any good these days..so i want to replace it with something else..not sure what tho i hear gskill are quite good? any ideas would be good.
also im thinking of getting 4gb as i heard there is a way that a 32bit os can handle more than 3gb with some sort of reg tweak..cant remember right now but i'm not sure if it works or is a good idea..
cheers in advance and sorry if this is the wrong section to post in

You can find out if it indeed is the ram by downloading a program called memtest86. You can put it on a cd and boot to it so you can test outside of the OS. Try that and see if it comes up with any errors.

There is an Intle Memory forum that can be found here http://www.overclock.net/intel-memory/

Like the user above me stated, try running memtest86 to see if your ram is indeed good, or bad Link: http://www.memtest86.com/

This is a great set of G Skill RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231122, Although it is 4GB, and 32 Bit WinXP cannot fully access all 4 GB, It still can't hurt to have the 4 Gigs for the future. GL!

yeah i have run that prog before and it never found any issues but that was in the os not from a cd, do you think it may be because the RAM is also clocked to 1003mhz...maybe i should bring it down.
ok well i will try memtest again from a cd and see what happens
