RAM or not?
I recently my new computer with these basic specs:
eVGA nForce 750i SLI motherboard
Intel C2Q Q8300 (NOT OC)
4GB OCZ SLI-Ready RAM @ correct timings and voltages
eVGA 9800GT PCI-E (latest drivers)
BFG 450 Watt PS
I had frequent problems with Windows 7 launching startup repair on a cold start and telling me "ntoskrnl.exe" was corrupt or missing and the "solution" being a system restore. So I tested my hard drive with SeaTools and it came out clean, did several fresh installs of Win7 and nothing fixed it. Also, sometimes when it would boot up the resolution of the screen was reset and in device manager it said that one of the nvidia drivers had stopped responding, but a reboot and it would be fine. So i eventually ran some tests with Memtest and with both sticks in, I had a couple of errors. I did some tests with the sticks individually and after 3 or so passes on each, there were no errors. I already RMA'd my RAM and am awaiting a replacement as apparently they are on "backorder" but my question is, is my RAM the problem or is it something else? i was thinking maybe the mobo is the problem seeing as it is recertified, or the power supply not being powerful enough (Dual 12V rails, but only 18 amps on each rail..). Thanks.
