i bought some new memory to upgrade from 256mb to 512mb and everything was fine, i could even run 3D graphics programs with no jumping or locking up. But then within 24 hours it went back to how it was, jumpy, jerky, and locking up.. but now even worse than before.
i thought it was a virus or adaware and did all the scans, nothing came up. I uninstalled old programs, cleared the start up and services startup, it didn't help. Then i decided to run a memory test, it came up with errors.
The problem is that i don't understand it at all, how can you tell if it's the memory that's the problem and which memory stick? And would it be a problem with the memory itself so it needs replacing? could it be the hard drive cache?

i ran the windows memory test and had errors shown up on that too.. sorry for the low points value D: any help or recommendations for programs for memory checkers would be deeply appriciated - just wish i understood the screen that i was staring so blankly at for parts of the two hours..
thank you so much!
