Hi,

I've windowsXP installed and i'm always getting this messages in the system logger. Sometime the laptop crashes and i've searched the web and it seems that, this is an AMD athon common problem, can someone tell me how to fix it?

My specs are:

Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo A7600
BIOS 1.10
AMD Athlon-XP-M 2000+
ATI Radeon IGP320m

Thanks.

It seems to me that the memory in your laptop is probably faulty, but check it anyway with Memtest86+ to be absolutely sure. You can download it from here:
http://www.memtest.org/' ">http://www.memtest.org/

Let it run for at least a couple of hours just in case, and if it finds any errors you have no choice but to replace the memory in your laptop.

Thanks for your tip.

I've been running memtest for a few hours and these are my results:

if i share less than 128Mb of RAM memory to my ATI IGP video card memtest gives 2 errors

else if i share 128Mb of RAM i get no errors on memtest.

Can someone inform me on how shared video memory works? I mean, i have 2 dimm's one that i can't move (of 256Mb that is "glued" to the motherboard, and another of 512Mb that i bought later).

Does shared video ram only uses DIM1 or can it use the second one?

I'm asking so i don't have to open my laptop and remove the dimm and test the memory again...
