Run the test with one stick of memory in. Do this to both to see what one is bad.

Thanx DX, I actually have 4, 1GB sticks, and I did some further trouble shooting last night. I took all my ram out, and tested each one individually. And found that 2 out of the 4 were throwing errors. looks like one of my 2GB kits has kicked the bucket.

Took those two out and put the good kit in, been running strong without error since about 1:30AM.

So for now the problem seems to be solved.

Thanks again for your help!

I've got an abit KT7(A?) setup running WinME that I just bought some
new RAM for. I got 3 new sticks of generic PC133 512 Meg, for a total
of 1.5 Gig. I tracked down some initial issues to system.ini settings
that allow WinME to live with ~1 Gig RAM, but the system is still
unstable with lots of recoverable blue screens and random 1-second
screen blanks. Just to see, I made a MemTest86 (v3.2) boot disk and
ran for 15+ hours on the auto settings. My results are below.
Unfortunately I don't know what to do with this info. Is there
anything useful I can glean from it other than that there's at least
one bad spot? Any way to tell which of the 3 sticks it is, for
instance, without running MemTest on them one at a time? Any help
appreciated.
