    To determine if the problem is stick or MB. Test each slot with a known good stick and Test each stick in a known good slot.

    Iv tested each stick in each slot in turn. That's two sticks, two slots. 4 combinations. Getting errors regardless. Don't have any others to try

    I came in late. You have errors per memtest. Exactly what is your question. You either have wrong ram, bad ram or bad MB.

    hmm the question is how to troubleshoot and find out which to replace really. i would have thought it unlikely for both sticks to be bad?

    Did this just begin when you installed 8?

    nope. has happened since probably around 2010 but much less frequently on win 7 (maybe three or 4 times per year). usually only when stressed. since windows 8 installed, almost daily.

    If both sticks have a failing result, its most likely the MotherBoard.

    Before making any drastic purchase moves, make sure your mother board is on the latest BIOS/UEFI. If it's from 2009 it will most likely have an update, and hopefully one specifically for Windows 8.
