Thanks Shreeni, Brady, and you too, Steve

Already forwarded all the links to my cousin who built the PC, and to my email at work so I can give it to a Win 7 guru in the IT department. I'm sure he will be interested.

Also, one of the gang members at pixelpeep (see my sig.) posted this article from Microsoft.

I know you've TESTED the memory, but have you pulled and re-seated the sticks? A pencil eraser along the contacts and a blow-off with compressed air can also help sometimes.

Cheers, Jim. Tested the memory like 2 or 3 times (through the OS, Win7) and it's working fine.

Ok, but I'm talking about physically removing the memory sticks from their slots and re-seating them. Expansion and contraction during thermal changes can cause a stick to test fine at one point and then fail sometime later, and then test fine still later again.
