Curious...the system is a Dell Optiplex GX270...RAM system is PC3200
2x512MB DIMMs in a the dual-channel arrangment. If I run memtest
against this setup, I get numerous errors. However, if run memtest with
only one DIMM installed (either one), I get no reported errors. Would
this still be an issue with the DIMMs or something wrong with the mobo?
PS...pardon me for asking a hardware question on a FreeBSD list :-)
