I purchased some new RAM the other day, another 8 Gb, but there's just no end to the problems... Well, besides the stick that appears to be completely FUBAR, I'm now running memtest, which reports 50+ errors spanning ALL memory - the original 4 Gb (2+2) AND the new 4 Gb (1x4; the system will not even reach POST with the other stick connected)... There are, of course, a few items to tackle here, but let's focus on just one or two things for now:
How bad is the memtest report? If I caused this state of affairs, how? and how do I avoid it in the future?
