So my computer is doing this funny thing.

I run prime for 10 hours..fine.

I shut it down, start it up, reboot it around 20 times. Boots right up.

I leave it shut down for an hour or so and i start getting beeps from my mobo when I power on.

The beeps I have read are Base 64 K memory failure. Now I dont mind swapping out memory to test it. But this is going to be a 3 hour proccess to test all three dimms.

Anybody know a quicker way?

Also..anybody know why im only getting this error after a long shutdown and why after I reboot it it runs fine for days at a time waking up from sleeps, restarts etc...?

Boot memtest86 with one dimm at a time and test it that way. Testing a 1gb stick on a fast machine only takes a few minutes. The only thing i can guess is that the ram works fine when warmed up, and is faulting when cold (hence, a long shutdown causes it to fail). Memtest should get to the bottom of it for you.
