checkit's "memory allocation error" is a software problem in checkit... it is not an indication of a hardware problem. try downloading everest (http://www.lavalys.com/) and use its memory tester.
it takes a while to count and test 2gb of ram. you can skip the mem test by enabling "quick boot" in the bios boot menu.
My ASUS P4p800-se MB has four memory slots. I purchased a gig of Kingston HyperX(2x512) for the blue slots. I received a gig of Crucial Ballistic ram for Xmas for the other two slots.(2X512). The computer seems to run fine most of the time except for a few little annoyances sometimes. Lately I have noticed that it takes for ever for my machine to POST.( I'm talking around 90 sec. or more just to count the ram)! At first I thought it was hung on the ASUS/Intel splash screen because I have to press Tab or Del to see what is going on behind it, which usually doesn't work. Come to find out, I just wasn't waiting long enough. It never does give the POST beep btw. Then it goes into Windows XP Pro SP2 just fine. I happened to run CheckIt Diagnostics and found that there are "memory allocation errors". The only way I can get rid of the errors is to remove the second 2 sticks. I've swapped the sticks around and I even tried a gig of generic ram but I still get the error if the second pair of sticks are installed. What does this mean and will it cause any problems or can I just ignore it and use all 2 gigs of hotrod (ie expensive) ram?
