When I run a memory test, it shows the following message

"88K E820 Off"

What does this mean?

I am running Memtest86+ test.

Where are you getting that info from? Below is a screenshot I dug up of memtest86+. It appears what you have listed is the RsvdMem - MemMap - Cache. That's supposed to be there & does not indicate a problem. The errors will be listed in the red area.

I get the message right after


None of the other options are displayed.

I assume the memory test is not even starting. I do not get the menu bar down below like, Esc (reboot) Config etc.

How are you running the program? It has to be run outside of the Windows environment from a bootable media (CD, DVD, floppy, USB jumpdrive).

i burnt the .iso file on to a cd using the burn image and I am running it from the cd.

I tried the jump drive option too, but both give the same message.

thank you for your follow up

You must be running it because you suspect a memory issue...what exactly is the problem you're having with your system? If you have more than one stick of RAM installed, try testing them one at a time.

Problem with the laptop is that it freezes at the Windows XP start up message. I already have a back up of all my files.

But since this is a OEM machine, I do not have the recover disks or the Windows XP Home Edition installation cd.

So I am checking to see if it could be a problem with the RAM

Sounds like overheating. Try blowing the dust out of the cooling vents.
