Subject: [gentoo-user] [OT?] ram question
Date: Sat, 14 Jan 2006 22:33:06
1 I just bought a 512M stick of Crucial ram to complement another 512M
2 stick...suddenly I'm getting tons of crashes, reboots, failed
3 compiles, etc. I removed the new stick, and all is well, now I'm
4 trying just the new stick alone, see if perhaps it was the both
5 together...
7 Something odd I've noticed, however: the new stick takes longer
8 during the BIOS memory check...i.e. the old stick (infineon, I
9 believe) the numbers go by essentially instantaneously. The new
10 stick, however, I watch them tick past for a good second (unless I hit
11 ESC, of course) This is true if the two sticks are in together, or if
12 only the new stick is in. Is this indicative of something? I'm
13 already pretty convinced that it's a bad stick, but I wondered if
14 anyone could shed further light for me.
