Failed memory test

  tristar 14:43 06 Jun 04

The last few times I've booted up my computer, running XP home, the American 'voice over' has come up with: 'System failed Memory Test'
My machine has then booted up with no apparent problems. Question: Should I be worried about this message? If there is a potential problem, what should I do about it?

Basically, I have no idea what a 'failed memory test' means.

Would appreciate an explanation.

what is your computer spec?

I'm running an Athlon AMD board, A7N8x2.0 @ 2.2 MHz, or so my machine says.

Thing is, as far as I can tell, everything is working OK when boot up is complete.

At top of screen on first boot up memory should be shown do you knowhow much mem you have?

128mb 256mb 512mb 1gb

the figure should be near one of the above.

I have the same mobo and I get this from time to time.

I think it just gets confused as there is nothing wrong with my memory.

Sorry - what was the question again?

I have A7N8X DL Board & I had the prob from new, was advised to disable the voice test thing which I did & have had no problems in 8 months.

Thanks everyone, I've just done two bootups and all was normal. I think I'll just ignore what appears to be false alarm.
