ram bad ?


BloodLust DWS

ok i need to know if theres a way to test my ram to see if its bad or on its way out ? thx
The test i've always used works good for me: if my computer boots up and clears the BIOS post.

You can go into your BIOS and turn off the quick boot up, the motherboard itself will run additional memory tests.
The problem with the bios test is that it's still not very extensive and can miss quite a few errors.

The best way of finding out bad ram is (believe it or not) installing windows. if it starts crashing when copy files then when the cab files are decompressed into memory it corrupts them and so crashes.

Alternatively there are numerous memory tester programs on the net.
The problem with windows installation as a testbed for RAM integrity is that the installation can crash for various other reasons too. Thus, it is hard to say tat, just because windows installation crashes, that your ram is bad.

Run Unreal Tournament for a while, and I can almost guarantee you'll start crashing like hell every other match if not sooner.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
