New RAM


Hello. I have installed some new RAM into my new Linux box, now, my browser keeps crashing!

I know the RAM works because I just took it out of another computer that worked fine with it. I have Fedora Core 5. Does Linux machine just not like new RAM being added in?

Any help would be appreciated.

How do you know if the browser is crashing because of the new ram?

Anyway check
dmesg

Output and see if any error is thrown out.
Also check /var/log/messages file for any error message related to RAM.
[Post the dmesg output here if possible ]


Also if you still are suspicious on the ram run a memory tester.
[I guess mem86 is available in FC5]
