    As stated in another forum, I may be having issues with my RAM. Can someone clear this up for me?

    My computer takes PC2700, I MAY have added pc3200...

    PC3200 runs just fine in a system that supports up to PC2700. The memory will simply run at whatever slower speed the board supports.

    Do the sticks of RAM run fine alone?

    Create a FREE Memtest86 boot CD.

    Download for free here (or buy CD premade):
    http://www.memtest86.com/

    Download the ISO ... and use your CD burning software like NEro to burn this 'bootable' image to CD.

    Make sure your PCs BIOS is configured to boot from CD 1st.
    Insert the memtest86 CD .. reboot PC.

    the test will launch from CD and scan your RAM for intense tests.
    This can take a long time .. the longer you run it, the more intensive the test.
    If any errors list (in red), you got faulty RAM.
