Troubleshooting the System Memory - Apparent Failure
When there is an apparent failure of the system memory, there are a myriad of different possible causes. The most common causes of memory failure (or apparent failure) vary greatly depending on whether the memory is in an existing system or in one that was just assembled or recently upgraded. This is because memory failure in a new system is more often than not due to misconfiguration or using the wrong type of memory, while in a system where the memory once worked, it is more likely that the memory itself has gone bad.
I have therefore provided two troubleshooting sections, for use in either of these two situations. Please choose the appropriate one.
