: Counting it...
: Seriously, I've seen alot of memory related problems, and only once
: has the boot-up check picked it up. The nature of RAM is that it's
: very difficult to check properly. Unless you write gazoodles of bit
: combinations to bazillions of permutations of neiboughing bytes,
: you'll never get a 100% certain that the RAM is reliable.
: eg: two bits stuck together, either in one byte, or nearby bytes...
: You'll never pick it unless your pattern check writes different data
: to those particular bits...
: Anyway, I've now seen about a dozen people say it's memory corruption,
: and nobody say it isn't so....
: However, when I asked the question, what about SWAP memory, the answer
: was, yes, it could be that (ie: the disk channel)...
: I'm running a Pentium-75 with a NCR 810 PCI SCSI interface...
I have just brought a 16M RAM and exchanged my original 2x8M RAM with
my friend's 16M to make my machine 32M. Now, I have the exact problem
as stated. Could somebody please confirm that it is really bad memory
problem before I go for a refund?
Many thanx in advance, Terry
