    I'm running a Dell XPS 400 on Windows XP Media Center. So far three applications have caused a blue screen memory parity error. Two low-quality fullscreen games and my webcam controller. One game is fine if I restart after the error, the other needed to be run in compatibility, the webcam I'm still not sure about. This is a nuisance more than anything else, but is there a way of finding out what part of my computer is doing this? I find it odd that it'd be my memory cards, since this only happens in certain predictable circumstances.

    I can't find an accurate way to test each one. I've switched them out and tried all three programs, which work with all four of my 1GB RAM cards. I've tried the programs now with all four cards in again without any problem.

    Is there another way to check them? I've also tried the diagnostic programs that came with my computer, and there's no problem there either.
