Well I have been having peoblems with my pc today...... Well for the past few days......

I ran a Memtest on my RAM and found what looked like bad RAM so I found out which stick was giving me problems (so it seems) and swaped in a 256 stick for it and all looks good.... Now since I also found out that I had a bad ide cable and it was enough to not let one of my cd-roms work.

I am wondering if a bad ide cable could give me bad results in memtest??????

I sounds like you've answered your own question, if you replaced the RAM and the problem is gone then the IDE cable was a separate issue.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I agree with dc3. The memory operations that are used to test memory don't involve any interaction with IDE, the problem with the cable would be just a coincidence.
