Memory test failed!

By Windranger ·

My computer crashes every few hours, no matter how easy the work is (even only internet browsing and text input in notepad).
At restart, XP requires a diskcheck which comes out with a no problems result.

I suspected a memory problem and I did a memory test with the "memtest" utility (MemTest-86 v3.4).

To my astonishment, all the tests came out bad:
INVC failed
LRAND failed
Stride 6 failed
WMATS+ failed
WINVC failed

Now, in these conditions I wonder how the computer can function at all..!

Anyway, what should I do in order to solve the problem?

Well for starters open BIOS and check that the Memory is correctly reported

Then restart the system and retest the RAM.

If it still comes up faulty replace it with RAM Certified to work with your M'Board.
