    Also, please link us to your memory if you can, or give us the exact model #. And tell us how much of it you are using, thanks!
    I will test them and get back to you.

    I'm using 4GB kit from Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C9.

    Hi,

    I have tested the RAM. One by one. It seems ok. But when the memtest switch from 99% to 100%, just in that momemt when it should turn over to 100% the computer shuts down and you can't start it for about 10 minutes. This also what happens when the computer shuts down in Windows (7).

    I have have also changed PSU.

    Thanks!

    Hmm... Maybe the shutting down at 99% was a coincident. I ran the test again with the other mem cap. I the got thru the 100% and continued to about 50% on the next test.

    I'm really confused here. Is it the RAM who is messing with me?

    By the way... In windows I'm monitoring the CPU temp, to see if it is overheating and it's not. The PC can shut down at 40 degrees as well as 60 degrees.

    Best regards

    Does both sticks of memory do that to you, shut down in the middle of testing?

    Are you using the latest version of Memtest86+
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    Shut down during testing is normally a huge issue, but if it happens with both sticks I am not sure as it's not too likely that both are bad (Could be though?)

    Yes, with booth. One ran for about 10 minutes, the other for about 15 minutes.

    Should I try a couple of more times?

    Do you have any other memory to test with?

    Are you using the latest Memtest86+ as I mentioned?

    Rebooting during tests means the memory is bad, that is why I asked if you have any other you could test with. Or it could be caused by older version of memtest86+, so be sure you are using the latest.

    Sorry! Yes, I'm using the latest version.

    I don't have any other memory. But I can buy it if it's necessary. What memory do you recommend in that case?

    Thanks
    Freddie

    I would recommend something off the QVL list so you can be assured of compatibility.

    Or you could just buy something cheap, like a single 1GB stick just for testing.

    I have ordered new memory. I will have it on friday. On thing thou... When I run the mem test, the PC will shut down after about 12 minutes. But if I start Windows and do nothing, it won't shut down.

    Can the memory overheat?

    Thanks

    Memory can overheat, if you think that is happening you can put a 80-120MM fan on the memory while we do this testing.

    Unless you are giving it crazy voltages though it shouldn't be overheating unless it has some flaws or something like that.

    Do you have another PSU you could test with to rule out your current one as an issue, could be that as well.
