Windows Memory Diagnostic Test Failed

by islandporgy / October 27, 2006 6:59 AM PDT

I did a memory diagnostic test and on one off my computers. I have one pc3200 1gig stick single sided, And one pc3200 512 double sided.
I did a test with both in and it failed, I did a test with each off the sticks by it self and the pc3200 1gig stick failed the extened test, Stride38 What ever that means.

What I was wondering, can the error be corrected.
Any advise would be helpfull.

Thank You Very Much:

Wendell H

Can not be repaired or corrected

I am assuming that the stick can not be repaired. I am pretty sure it is still under warranty. I was using it in my other computer but I thought that XP could not handle or work well with 3 gigs dual chnnel memory. But works Well with 2 gigs Dual channel enabled.
Now I know it is a defected stick.

Thank You Very Much:
