A couple of weeks ago my PC started acting up it would not start all i got was a single long beep. It seemed the solution was to take out the HDD SATA lead and replace it and the PC stated up okay. And would run okay until i switched it off. I thought that the problem was the motherboard. But after a few experiments i noticed that if i took out one of the memory sticks and replaced it the PC started up okay.
So i think the problem may be the memory, is there a free or at least inexpensive memory tester that will test my memory.
