I've had a problem with system freezes, primarily when playing videos, also a problem with occasionally not getting video on the first power-up of the system (almost always comes on on the second try when that happens).
I ran memtest, primarily in trying to solve the system freezes, on each ram stick separately, in different module slots, and got the same errors at the same point in the test each time. I also ran a 5 minute burn of the CPU which came back with no errors.
I would think that if the ram sticks were damaged, the errors would almost certainly be different in each one, no?
To me, this indicate that the problem is in the Mobo, either hardware or drivers. Does that seem reasonable? Is there a test that can be done to check Mobo integrity?
