Memory Troubleshooting Fact Sheet 2.5.10

QuestionAnswer
High hard disk usage can cause some operating systems send data to the hard disk drive. This can happen if there is not enough? Physical memory available
If you hear the hard drive constantly operating as you work, or if the hard drive light on the front of the system case stays illuminated for long periods of time,what should you do? Add more physical memory to the computer
What should you do If you receive "Not Enough Memory" or "Out of Memory" errors when you try to open and use more than one program at a time? Add more physical memory to the computer
True or false, memory problems usually occur when more memory is installed than the system supports, or the CMOS settings are wrong? True
True or false, memory problems usually occur when there are incompatible or broken modules? True
True or false, memory problems usually occur when there are, improperly installed modules or dirty or defective sockets? True
True or false, if the PC boot fails and sounds a beep code, is an indication that either no memory is installed or the memory was not detected? True
True or false, if the PC boots, but the display remains blank, a card or memory module is not seated, or the system includes unsupported memory? True
True or false, if the PC boots, but the display remains blank non-parity RAM is incompatible with ECC memory and SDRAM is incompatible with EDO memory? True
True or false, if the PC boots, but the memory count is incorrect, the POST failed to recognize all of the memory? True
True or false, if the PC boots, but the memory count is incorrect, the POST failed to recognize all of the memory because of incompatible memory installation? True
True or false, the PC boots, but the memory count is incorrect can be avoided by not combining dual-bank with single-bank memory? True
True or false, If any problem is detected during system boot-up, check the BIOS settings? True
True or false, the system will only check for memory installed in memory slots on the motherboard. Memory that is on expansion cards or installed on other devices will not be counted and tested? True
True or false, memory mismatch error can indicate a failing module or discrepancies between new and old memory? True
True or false, Memory parity interrupt at x can indicate a failing module or discrepancies between new and old memory? True
True or false memory address error at x can indicate a failing module or discrepancies between new and old memory? True
True or false, Memory failure at x, read y, expecting z can indicate a failing module or discrepancies between new and old memory? True
True or false, Memory verify error at x can indicate a failing module or discrepancies between new and old memory? True
True or false, discrepancies between new and old memory can be avoided by not mixing new and old memory? True
True or false, to avoid memory errors, ensure that the memory is functioning properly and is compatible with the system? True
True or false, if the memory is good and fully compatible, memory error messages could mean that the motherboard has a problem? True
True or false, software-generated memory problems can cause a registry error because parts of the registry are written to faulty sections of RAM? True
True or false, software-generated memory problems can cause an exception error, general-protection fault, or page fault because of a software bug? True
True or false, for software-generated memory problems check to see if the memory address indicated in the error is consistently the same. If so, check the memory. Otherwise, reboot the system or update the software? True
True or false, One of the tougher detection challenges is the intermittent occurrence of error messages, crashes or sudden reboots? True
True or false, the trouble in diagnosing the intermittent occurrence is the number of potential problems, including timing, heat, corrosion, fluctuating power, loose connections, EMI, or a combination of these problems? True
True or false, when you first boot-up a new computer and encounter a memory error, the problem is usually the memory is not properly seated, missing, or the motherboard is defective? True
True or false, after a memory upgrade, you get a memory error when booting the computer. You should ensure that the memory is compatible and was installed and configured properly? True
True or false, after a new software installation you encounter memory errors when booting the computer. You conclude the new software requires more memory and is causing the problem? True
True or false, after a hardware installation you encounter a memory error when booting the computer. You conclude that improperly installed hardware can cause errors that appear to be memory related? True
True or false, after hardware removal you encounter memory errors when booting the computer. You conclude that incompletely or improperly removed hardware can cause errors that appear to be memory related? True
