OK, I have two 256mb pc133 sdram sticks, one came with the computer and one I bought from tigerdirect. I added the stck from tiger direct and then was browsing through Norton utilities and saw the memory tester. I ran it and was dismayed when it said my memory had errors, I took out the stick I just bought and tried again, this time no problems. Then I saw a thread on here about another memory tester and decided to try it to see if maybe it was just norton. I downloaded the program from simmtester.com, it had me create a bootable floppy, and then I restarted. I ran the burn in test because it was supposed to be the best one. Well, after 12 hours, and 46 loops without any errors I decided that was enough, so now I ask you, is it possible that norton was wrong, or is simmtester wrong? Should I continue using the stick in question or should I take it out? Thanks in advance everybody.
