Can anybody tell me the meaning according to the failing adddress of MemTest86+?
I heard somebody said that I can find which is the failed DRAM IC according to failing address.
Is it ture or just rumor?
Please help on it.

It's true if you know which IC stores which bit (prints can definitely help). Then you need appropriate equipement to replace the failed chip. Another issue is finding a replacement chip that's from the same batch for best compatibility. Using proper test equipment is a much better solution.

I really appreciate.
By the way, do you know how to indentify which ICs of the module get involved with the issue by the failing address?
Is there any technical document mention about it?

You could get the prints for the module from the manufacturer, but they all should be similar. Reading and other similar info may help: http://www.fedevel.com/welldoneblog/2011/02/ddr-ddr2-dd...
