Is my RAM dead?
During the POST, the LED on my mobo will give me a number if something is wrong. I've been getting a code C1, which is a memory problem. "Auto detection of DRAM size, type, and ECC".
So, I pull the RAM and switched it to a different slot. It booted up fine, but after a few minutes of use the system would lock up. I would reset it and get code C1 again. So just for the heck of it, I switched the RAM back to the original slot. It worked again. I shut it off and after sitting awhile, it won't boot up again giving me code C1.
Basically, if I just keep swapping the RAM from one slot to the other, it will keep working. But if the RAM stays in one slot, it will eventually quit working. Do I have a dead stick of RAM or is it my mobo?
