Recently my PC was crashing more often than normal in Windows, so I turned on full memory checking in the BIOS.
The system then refused to boot as it displayed a R/W Memory error.
I had 2 x 1gb modules (ballistix) installed, removed one at a time, found out which one was causing the error, and then removed it.
The PC was far more stable from this point on, and I ordered another memory module (matched).
Yesterday though, the same error has appeared again, and now the single remaining memory module is also causing the same BIOS error.
I wondered if this was a common thing to happen (i.e. both memory modules go in succession), or whether I'm just plain unlucky! ;-) ... obviously I am a little wary now about installing more new memory, as they might go pop too if something else is wrong.
I must admit, I've never had a fault with memory before, so I am seeking advice here.
The fault may have nothing to do with your memory; it could be a faulty power supply, although if the memory is genuinely faulty then memory dying one after another from old age due to contamination is common if they are of identical manufacturer and date.
