Hi all,

I installed F12 on an Asus Eee 1101HA. Apart from the Intel GMA 500

troubled by frequent system freezes, sometimes literally within minutes of

There are no error messages reported in the system log, so I am assuming it
is a hardware problem.

Just now I am running memtest from the Live OS (F12) on an USB stick. It has
run now for some 8 hours, and during the 2nd pass I got an error message:

Tst: 7
Pass: 2
Failing address: 00007ba7454 - 123.6MB
Good: 2aa1e9b
Bad: 0aa1e19b

This netbook came with a factory-installed 2GB SIMM. Am I now justified in
returning it to Acer as defective?

Probably, but I think I would contact the vendor first. I suspect that with the proof of problem you have they would rather replace just the memory.

After that you decide what your personal ratio of time to money is, particularly if you were going to add another 2GB anyway. And if you bought it at Staples or similar where they do simple repairs, they *may* stand behind it and do the repair as good will.
