"Can someone refer me to a make and model of memory tester that would
test 144-PIN SODIMM 64Mx64 SYNC 100 memory? I need to read and write the
memory continuously for 24 hours looking for any ECC errors. I am
testing used memory modules that are coming back from the field."
"If you can put them in a computer that has a CD drive, you can use
" Yes, but then I am need to buy a computer that takes this kind of
turning the notebook into a memory tester. At best it is not very
if I need to test other kinds of memory."
Here you go:
You will need to confirm that it will support ecc testing of your SODIMMs.
Whether you can justify the cost, I leave to you.
Unless you have lots and lots of these modules being returned*, it's
probably going to be more cost effective to simply assume that they are
faulty and bin/replace them rather than tie up (expensive) equipment and
If they test ok, what then? Send them back? That they pass a memory
test is no proof that they will work reliably in the field - to do that,
you need to recreate the field conditions, or ensure that your test
envelope includes those conditions.
A compromise may be to set up an identical rig to the field one and soak
them in that. It is ecc memory, so it will report ecc errors.
