MEMORY UPGRADE - Windows Memory Diagnostics Flags 1 Stride38 Error

Q: MEMORY UPGRADE - Windows Memory Diagnostics Flags 1 Stride38 Error

I have just bought some new memory, 2 x 1 gig, inserted it and ran the test. I get one error in the Stride38 test. Address expected is different to the one returned.

I know which chip it is, should I send it back, or is this 1 error acceptable for the system?

Thanks for your response

Preferred Solution: MEMORY UPGRADE - Windows Memory Diagnostics Flags 1 Stride38 Error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Not sure if this is really the right place for this but I was directed to Technet from the Support Community. No forum/category seems more appropriate.
The problem computer is a Lenovo G510 notebook, with a 1TB disc and maybe 8GB memory. It was updated to W10 about a year ago. I was starting to have problems with it before the upgrade, but mem diags, Seagate disc diags, Lenovo diags, chkdks, etc have all
indicated no problems other than 1 bad block on the disc.
I tried to run memory diagnostics from the restart now option. This had worked in the past. I kicked off the restart, and the system entered the diagnostics program on power-up as expected. The problem is that it just keeps on looping through the test over
and over. It never exits. ESC just pauses the diagnostics, it does not stop them. Any entry just restarts the test. No combination of keystrokes during the test or at power-up have resulted in stopping the diagnostics. The test window is full screen so I can't
see away of bringing up another function to end the diagnostics. Can anyone suggest a way to exit the diagnostics and continue to Windows?

thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,
I have recently been having random blue screens of death and i downloaded the Windows memory diagnostic tool, ran the diagnostics tool (http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp) and a few things happened:
1- It threw up a message before the scan saying then memory map could not work with 4gb or something like that (i only have 4gb installed on my system) however it gave me the option to continue with the scan anyways.
First question, is this normal?
2- I continued with the scan and left it overnight for 8 hours, the first half hour i watched what was going on and it kept flagging FAILED messages on every single pass, there wasnt a single SUCCEEDED message which seemed extremely bizarre. I woke up in the morning and the scan was still going on past 64 passes.
Second question: Surely if my pc works most of the time then something would have passed and not just flagged everything as FAILED?!
Third question: How many passes does windows go through, i left the pc on over 8 hours and from what i read the memory scan should only take a few hours...

Thanks for help

I've got a doozy of a problem going on here:

I've got a Vista Ultimate x64 installation. I wanted to check on my memory usage (I have 4 GB, and set my BIOS to recognize all four gigs), so I decided to schedule Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool to run on an immediate restart. It looks like I'm not detecting any problems with my RAM, but the test always runs the number of passes I specify (2 by default, but any other number as well) and then RESETS back to 1 of X passes complete and overall test status of 0%.

I'm unable to exit the test to boot normally by hitting ESC (it does nothing; just resets test progress to zero and option defaults).

I've tried a system restore after accessing my boot options by hitting F8 and booting from my Ultimate DVD; it seems that the problem is mdsched.exe got set to run the test on start-up, and since I'm never able to exit the test, mdsched.exe runs during boot up every time.

I basically don't know how I can get past this Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool. Can anyone please, please help me?

Ok, I will try to make a long story short. I've had issues with BSOD off and on for sometime now. They don't happen at any particular time and mostly occur in the middle of the night. They occur about every 3 to 4 months. I used Bluescreenview to look at the dump files. The driver it pointed to was ntoskernl.exe and the bug string mentioned in four different cases was reference_by_pointer, driver_irql_not_less_or_equal, memory_management and bad_pool_header. The other drive mentioned in one of the other dump files was fltmgr.sys with the bug check string of bad_pool_header.

Everything I could find on the web pointed to bad memory or bad mobo. I ran Windows Memory Diagnotcs Tool under the advanced setting. It took 9 hours to run and it failed. I took out all sticks of ram and put them in one at a time and ran the diagnostic tool with standard setting. That only took about 20 minutes each to run and all sticks of ram passed. I then put all sticks back in and ran it with the standard setting and all sticks passed again. I then took out one stick and left two sticks in and ran the test with the advanced setting and it failed. I'm now down to running one stick at a time with the advanced setting. The problem is it takes 9 hours to run on the advanced setting.

Hi there ppl, I was told to start a Windows Memory Diagnostics Scan on my computer and to schedule it for the next time my PC restarts so I did, problem is it now wont stop it just keep's running, I have tried some of the solutions I have seen on here like turning of the computer and removing the ram sticks and swapping them around turning it back on but it still goes back into the WMD scan, so I cant even log into windows. I have tried booting up with the windows disk and restoring it to a earlier time hoping that might override the command made but that also failed, please help as I'm stumped as to what to do and dont want to have to reinstall everything or take it to some comp shop to be charged a mass amount of money for something that is probably very easy to fix.

When ever I properly shut down my system it wont boot normally. Here is what happens:

It goes to the screen "Starting windows" and gets stuck.
I press the power button, and then press it again to start the system.
I am given the screen with two options: run system repair and start windows normally.
I chose system repair.
And after system repair starts it takes like half an hour to get to the screen with the option: restore to a previous restore point.
I chose no and the system repair starts again.
And at the end it says that it was unable to find any problems and weather I need to see advance options
in the advance options I chose run memory diagnostic.
The system reboots and starts memory diagnostics.
And after completing the test it again give me the screen with options start system repair or run windows normally. I chose windows normally and it boots
After booting I am given the message that windows memory diagnostics did not find any problems with the memory

This is how I boot my computer right now, but i really dont like it. Please tell what might be wrong and how can i fix this.

Hi
I run diagnostics which gave me a Hardware Failure Replace Memory error and the recommended next steps below:

Your memory module is not working correctly and should be replaced. This part is covered by your warranty. Please fill out the following form and we will ship your free replacement part to you. Note: Warranty details can be viewed by entering your Service Tag on the Dell Support homepage or on the My Products and Services page.

Funny thing is the system still seems to work even though diagnostic says it is a critical error, so do I need to replace the 2 x 4Gb memory? My Inspiron Zino HD 400 support warranty has expired but is the memory still covered by manufacturers Lifetime warranty? If so as online search on memory suggests then how do I make a claim?
Thanks

A:Diagnostics - Hardware Failure - Replace memory

All parts are covered by Dell's warranty. If that expired, the company that made the memory probably won't help you.
Before you do anything else, try reseating the RAM modules in their slots.
Power off, unplug
Press/hold power button for ~15 sec
Open case and remove RAM modules from the slots
Use some canned air to blow out the dust bunnies
Reinstall the RAM and close up
Boot and run the diagnostics
If the memory error recurs, you probably should replace both modules so you have a matched pair.

Hi,

I am baffled and want some advice!

I have just upgraded a friends PC. It is a Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe mobo. It used to have two sticks of 1gb (800/5/5/5) which was running great, 128 mode, and I added the memory that they had bought (800/6/6/6). The bios settings were set to auto.

When it booted it stopped at the memory bit so I rebooted and this time it passed, but was running at 667. I went to the bios and manually set 800/6/6/6 which ran, but I started getting page errors etc. And it didnt boot everytime either.

I took out the original and left bios on auto, it detected the new memory and ran without trouble. I also ran memtest86 on both sticks without error.

What am I missing? Why does it keep dropping to 667?

Thanks,
Paul.

p.s. its vista 64 hence the upgrade to 4gb.
 

A:Memory Upgrade Error

Many boards have problems when all four slots are populated. One of these is to downclock the ram to a slower speed. I have a nvidia chipset board sitting right here in my server that does the same thing.

Next did you check the asus site and check the qvl list for ram for your board?

Mixing ram of different mfg, speed and or timing is asking for problems.

I wanted to upgrade my memory capacity on a Dell Precision 410 / Windows 2000 / Dual Processors / SCSI Hardrive. But an error message suddenly appeared. Can someone explain what this message mean? ""One or more memory DIMM are out of rev. PRess F1 to configure or Press F2 to continue."

I installed a pair 256 MB of RAM PC100 DIMM into a Dell Precision 410, which already has a pair of 128 MB RAM DIMMS. When the PCs boots to POST, the error message that I stated ealier dsplays.

When I pressed F1 to configure the memory, the amount of memory shown is correct. When I F2 to boot, the OS started without a problem. When I removed the newly installed RAM from the system and rebooted, the error message went away.

What exactly is the message is saying? It is so vague. I figured so far, that the new RAM that I installed is somehow not quite compatible or defective. Can someone explain this to me?

I''ve just upgraded my Athlon AMD XP computer from 512 Mb to 2G kingston RAM in two sticks. On first boot it gave me "CMOS settings wrong". I went in and noticed the time was incorrect, so changed it, and altered settings to "Best performance settings". I then shutdown as am concerned I might cause damage.

Is there anything I need to do. The HowTo's I've read dont mention CMOS changes.

Thanks

Hi,

I have a Qosmio G30-201, with the following spec:
- Intel? Centrino? Duo Mobile Technology featuring Intel? Core?2 Duo Processor T7400- Genuine Windows? XP Media Center Edition- 400 (200 + 200) GB Hard Disk Drive- 2,048 (1,024+1,024) MB DDR2 RAM (533 MHz)- 17" Toshiba TruBrite? WUXGA TFT display- HD DVD-ROM drive

Running under Vista Ultimate

I would like to upgrade the memory to 4096.

Do I have to buy 4096 of memory, or can I add 2048?

What memory do i buy? Toshiba do not seem to sell MB DDR2 RAM (533 MHz) after 4 years. What other memory would be suitable?

Many thanks,

Best regards

Nick

A:Re: How to upgrade memory on Qosmio G30-201 and where to buy memory

Your notebook can handle with 4GB of RAM and I recommend you to use 2 x 2GB module.
Compatible 2 GB module has part number PA3513U-1M2G or Kingston KTT667D2/2G.

Put the part umber in Google and you will find a place where you can order it in your country.

Bye

I was trying to listen to a radio station through windows media player, and when I click the station, ( which worked before), I get an out of memory error popup, and get forwarded to this page, http://www.microsoft.com/windows/wi...&id=C00D11C6&contextid=83&originalid=8007000E

I am running a pentium dual core, windows Vista home premium, with 2 gigs Ram, and a 1 gig video card. and a 500GB hard drive, thats only 1/4 the way full.

I had other programs running, but I closed them out.
( I use process explorer, so I know there is enough free memory).

Wondering if its virtual memory or some setting? If not its probably related to the actual radio station that I am trying to listen to, as I tried a different one, ( music that I am not really that into, ), and it works fine..

 hello everyone,I just bought a Lenovo G480 (5934-5486), Intel® Core? i5-3210M , Intel HD Graphics (4000), OS: windows 8, 4GB RAM...Can I upgrade RAM up to 16GB (8GB x 2) or more?Do you have any suggestions?thanks!  

A:G480 windows 8 memory upgrade

hi diegomaguina,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
This Lenovo G480 (5934-5486) has a max memory of 8Gb (supports Dual Channel PC3-12800 1333Mhz/1600MHz - 2 slots). If you have both slots occupied, you will need to change your RAM modules to 2 x 4GB DDR3-1600Mhz. If you have 1 slot occupied. You just need 1pc 4Gb DDR3-1600Mhz memory module. You can get one here.
 
In order to access the RAM slot, you will need to:
1. Remove the Battery Pack
2. Bottom Compartment Cover
 
You can find these instructions on page 49 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual..
 
Caution:
Please be careful in disassembling your PC as the internal parts are very fragile.
 
Note:
Both the CPU and the Motherboard must support 1600Mhz memory controller, otherwise, the memory frequency will clock down to 1333Mhz.
 
 
Hope this helps.

Hello! I am new to the boards but from what I have seen this will be the place to come from now on

I upgraded my memory tonight from 128 to 512 (rambus). Install was of course easy and had no beeps at start. Now windows will not boot all the way. If I hit restart it takes me to the options page (safe/normal/ect). I hit f1 at start to check my settings and all seemed fine so I continued from there and after getting to the windows page it errored out and said that windows did not load properly! I replaced the old memory and am now getting the same result as with the new. I did not change anything before or after installing the memory. if anyone has an idea of what went wrong here, please let me know thanks!
 

A:Windows won't boot after memory upgrade!

Can you boot into safe mode?

Do you get any error messages/text??

Can you tell us what operating system?

BTW- Welcome to Techspot! :wave:

I'm posting in the XP forum because I was under the impression that I had/have windows XP. The complete message is

"Windows NT has found only 495K of low memory. 512K of low memory is required to run Windows NT. You may need to upgrade your computer or run a configuration program provided by the manufacturer"

The computer is a 2001 or 2002 Dell Rev. A03, It won't load windows and I can't seem to access any boot menu. I have not made any changes to the computer's hardware.

A:Windows NT has found only 495K of low memory. 512K of low memory is required to run..

Windows XP is of the Window NT File System (NTFS) family. Download the ISO image for Memtest in my signature and burn the image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature. Boot off of the newly created CD and run the tests with ONE stick of RAM in at a time. testing individually. If you get any errors, that stick is bad and needs to be replaced.

After my new build froze up during boot up into Windows 8, I tried to run Windows 8's built-in Windows Memory Diagnostic, extended setting, but it got stuck at 21% of 1st pass (10% overall) after running it overnight (at least 12 hours). I had 4x4GB memory modules, and re-ran this test with only one stick in different slots, all with the same result: it would quickly get to 10% overall complete, then apparently get stuck there. However I noted that I could still access F1 options when it got to 10% complete, so it wasn't frozen, but the system became extremely slow, with the screen displaying text one word at a time.

Some ideas on how to isolate the problem? I wish I could just return both the motherboard and the memory to the store, but there may be a restocking fee involved with the motherboard unless it's defective.

My parts are:
Intel Core i7-3770K
MSI Z77A-GD65
Corsair Vengeance 4x4GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) model CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9

Other information/symptoms:
- I can not run memtest at bootup either by using a DVD/CD or USB key. The motherboard's boot code indicate that it keeps trying to detect the device (DVD drive or USB key) and then gives up. Maybe memtest isn't compatible with this hardware, or I am not configuring it properly, or there are some hardware problems here.
- The keyboard sometimes did not work during boot up, such as when attempting to select the USB key to boot into memtest (attaching a USB keyboard worked, but I still couldn't get memtest to run)... Read more

To start, I have Windows 7, on Sony Vaio laptop.

I have been working on the issues with the malware removal team, but now machine looks clean, I am still having issues.

When starting the computer and going to the task manager, I can watch explorer.exe start at about 18K memory usage and then grow constantly until it is running with almost all of the computer's physical memory after about seven min. I cannot get the context menu to show up after a few min by right clicking on anything.

I had been experiencing "freezing" while playing Eden Eternal (an online role playing game) before that, which made me consider malware and seek help here at BleepingComputer. The freezing has ended, last time I played on that machine at least, but now there seems to be some issue with the explorer.exe taking all of the memory. I haven't been using the machine since I don't trust that there's not something running in the background that shouldn't be.

In resource monitor there were "connections" that had "-" for both the name and the PID, but I don't know if that was the malware of if that's normal somehow?

Issue with explorer.exe seems to be limited to only one user account, and not the other one. That is to say that if I log on one of the other accounts explorer.exe behaves normally, as far as memory usage.
