I got my replacement dimm from Crucial ... installed it ... and a few days
later got another panic. Same error codes!
I downloaded memtest86 and ran it ... it reported errors at what APPEARED to
be the high end of memory. I ran the same memtest86 disk on another machine
and it reported no errors.
I then ran the Dell memory test and it reported no errors.
I repeated the test with the original 128mb dimm that shipped with the
system and got similar results.
Unfortunately, I did not note the exact error locations that memtest86
reported ... but I can re-run the test tonight.
Any suggestions on how I should approach Dell about this? Are they
receptive to output of 3rd party memory test programs?
