Update as of this morning 54 passes no errors. Let me know what else to do now. If we are going to scan the new ram I will make the news memtest disc since this is very much newer memory and might not be handled under the old version of memtest I have.

nGday.
We will stay with the old RAM that has passed testing individually.
Have you run the test with both sticks installed.
Post #278. "Then.
>Run MenTest86, 5 passes.
> Remove the RAM, mark it number one, install the second stick in slot #1, run 5 passes.If both sticks have passed without any errors.
>Leave stick two in slot #1.
> Install the number one stick in slot #2, run for 5 hours."


To save searching the Topic, Please list your hardware again,
MB, CPU, GPU,
Thanks.

Of the memtest in slot 1 I've ran both sticks of old memory stick #1 and stick #2. Its been a crazy week how many passes do you want me to do on slot two for stick #1 and stick #2?

motherboard - g41m-43 / g41m-p33 msi board
CPU- Pentium dual core cpu E5400 @ 2.70GHZ
GPU- Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT

While reading over the thread I will do the 2nd run of memtest 2nd stick in spot 1 and 1st stick in spot 2 for 5 hrs.

Gday.
Thanks for the update.


When run individually, both sticks have passed. RAM running as a pair will be he last test, Just run for an hour.


On another machine, can you burn a CD?
Will the busted rig Boot from USB?
Can you borrow a GPU, even an old one? (known working)
Have you got a spare HDD that we could swap with the existing and try a fresh install of the OS?

The two sticks of old ram I did leave overnight to run 23 passes no errors

1)On another machine, can you burn a CD?
2)Will the busted rig Boot from USB?
3)Can you borrow a GPU, even an old one? (known working)
4)Have you got a spare HDD that we could swap with the existing and try a fresh install of the OS?

1) Yes I can burn a cd on another machine if its something like ISO or something I will need the link for the quick burn program and of course what I'm burning.
2) It supposedly can but I never had success doing it at all. I know there is also the option in bios and such for it.
3) I can double check if I have any PCI GPU around. If I don't will the onboard motherboard one work?
4) I have some HDD around how big do they need to be for barebones XP install roughly?

Yes, you can try.
Is the rig used oft CD burning running window 7? if no, please download this burning software, (use download@Major Geeks) when installing do not except any of the bloatware.
A PCI GPU card may get boot to desktop, but really wanted to test the PCI-E slot.
Will leave booting by USB stick, do not need it at the moment.
I will post some instructions to downland Puppy Linux, Live CD. If it will run on the computer from a CD, it will show that all your hardware is OK. The problem is then the Windows installation.

Nest step depends on whether the good computer is running windows 7? or not?

The good computer is window 7 OS. I'm doing better now ready to get back to trying to fix my pc. The links you provided I don't see "puppy-4.2.1-k2.6.25.16-seamonkey.iso" to DL.
