    my desktop constantly reboots by itself. it has a msi k7n2 mb with a amd athlon 2500+, 1.5gb ram. i dont remember it doing this before i put in the last gig of ram, so im gonna pull those 2 sticks out. but is there anyways i can check them to see if something is wrong with them?

    well i took out 1 gig last night and it worked fine, so i 512 back in and it seems to be working. i think it might be something with that last slot.

    Or with that RAM,


    Here is what I would do.

    Take out the "known good" stick and put in the bad one and run memtest on it and see if it fails... If it doesnt then try to run the OS with "known bad" stick and see how long you last.
