Had a computer crash about a month ago due to my setting a registry value incorrectly. Retrieved files and started fresh with XP again on formatted 1tb sata drive.
Firefox 52.9 Browser
1 TB SATA HD
Win XP SP3
2GB ram (4 sticks)
3.2 ghz processor
Plenty of hd space
New installation of XP
dual monitors (extended desktop)
separate Video card
Power supply very sufficient
I have downloaded Ramtest 86 to check on my ram and not sure what I am reading...Please see attached picts.
What I have noticed is that my computer is having difficulty in loading pages and/or executing programs and sometimes the video graphics load slowly such as on the desktop icons. Have used Crap-Killer to clean out computer also.
I have tinkered with the allotted memory windows uses to no real change in performance....I have installed "VMWare Workstation" to install Win 7 (virtually) and it loads like molasses if it loads at all...I have made adjustments in ram allocations for that also but, no real performance changes, especially when attempting to load Win 7.
I downloaded the memtest program and not sure what the heck I am reading or, if the program would shut itself down after test(s) are completed...I have looked at the docs and they to me are inconclusive.....
Is my ram;
on it's way out or,
tests not completed yet (remember, I have (500) sticks of ram = 2gigs).
**SHOULDN'T THERE BE 4 INDIVIDUAL TESTS BEING THAT THERE ARE 4 STICKS RAM?**
