Defective RAM

My home PC RAM (Random Access Memory) or memory stick had been found faulty (8 errors as checked by an utility, memtest86+). I think the RAM had been fault for sometime, I reckon more than 1 year as my computer sometimes experienced the death blue screen (Windows stop error). In the past I had changed the hard disk (bad sector), Motherboard (don't know what went wrong) and Graphic Card but the problem persist. I had overlooked the RAM.

The concerned RAM is Apacer DDR2 1GB 533. The main problem is there is no such stock in computer shops here and order had to be made from KL (my motherboard can only support up to 533 whereas most shops here selling at least 667)

The replacement part is scheduled to arrive next week (Tuesday). Hence, I can only online using my office PC after working hour.

I will try my best to reply to the viewers. The posts had been scheduled and the blog will remain active.
