There are many prior posts where memtest passes and there are memory problems. So I agree, try another board.
Hello everyone, recently my computer (which has run for ~2 years in its current configuration) has been experiencing total system freezes just recently.
Equipment in question:
Mobo: ASRock z77 Extreme 6
*I believe a year or two ago, it was this same board model that blew a capacitor (which woke me up), and I had that one rma’d (computer would not boot at all).
Ram (4gb x4): G.SKILL Ripjaws Series DDR3 1600
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k
What I’ve noticed is that all 4 ram sticks will run by themselves and together in the B1 and B2 slots, but the boot process will fail with error 55 (memory not installed correctly) when using the A1 or A2 slots either by themselves or with a second stick in either an A or B slot.
I’m guessing that points to a Mobo failure? Is there anything else I should try? Just before taking the computer apart, I ran Memtest for 1 full pass which found 0 errors (not sure what that means given my current findings).
Any ideas are appreciated, thank you for reading.
