But since you're having so many problems, so often, you don't really need such a time-consuming tool (I think). Just run your PC with one memory module installed at a time and see if you get correct behavior or not. Its faster, given the frequency of crashes you reported. Try firefox for example since it is causing u so many problems. Chances are that one memory module will show the signs immediately (in my case, there was a faulty mem module and when I used it alone, PC wouldn't even boot correctly, so it was piece of cake) BTW, what memory do you have? is there any chance that you're giving it the wrong voltage from the respective BIOS settings? Good luck, Dimitris PS: I also have Asus A8N (no GPU onboard), running Etch64, with 2.6.15 and nvidia 1.0.8762-2, everything is fine.
