Ysgrifennodd Randall R Schulz:
Yes, indeed, you have bad RAM. It's far from rare.

Did you, by any chance, tweak your RAM access parameters in the BIOS for
speed purposes? If so, go back into the BIOS and let it use the RAM's
SPD (Serial Presence Detect) to determine the appropriate RAM access
parameters.

If not, you're probably just going to have to replace that RAM.

Sorry to resurrect this thread. Just thought you might like to know that I've just got my machine back from the vendors (who've replaced the memory with not one quibble, fair play).

Nothing's crashed yet. So I'm living in hope. If it goes for a week, I'll post an official apology for ever doubting my Linux installation.

:)


Peter
