this is the only time that i have ever had a problem with memtest86 not working properly.
the computer is an ibm personal computer 300pl 6892. cpu is pentium II.
i haven't had the computer long, only a couple of weeks. it was given to me with 128mb ram, two sticks of 64mb hyundai hyn7v75801 pc100.
i wanted to see if i could add more, all i had available were 64mb sticks. according to the crucial site, i have numerous options, and that the pc100 64mb stick i have should work. the stick is almost identical to what is in there. this stick is hym7v65801. only one digit is different.
i can run memtest86 with either the original two sticks, or add the third stick and i get the same thing. the screen looks like this:http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/773/oct152010006.jpg
the ram seems to be working, though now there are two beep codes when starting. first a long beep with three short ones, a long silent period, then a one-quick-beep.
the computer seems to be working ok considering having only 192mb ram.
does anybody have any idea why memtest is not working. i just used the cd-rom to install a linux distro. so the cd-rom is probably ok, and should i be concerned with the beep code i received?
any advice or tips would be appreciated.
