I recently started having freezing issues on my computer only after doing a fresh install of XP. I never had issues with the computer freezing before. So, I decided to run Memtest. Unfortunately, I don't know exactly what these results mean.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RAM: GSkill DDR2 800 - 2x1GB and 2x512MB
MOBO: Asus P5B

It was at least 10 hours into the test before the error appeared. You can see I stopped the test at 14+ hours.

I'm trying to figure out which RAM module needs to be replaced. Can you tell which one failed with the test results you see? I'd rather not have to test each of the 4 RAM modules individually.

Cant really tell which one it is that way, youd be best off taking out all the modules but one, and running the test on each one individually.
