    Ran the extended test a couple times and got an error result: 4MEM/9/40000006:B:OC:OR:2.

    Is this telling what my problem part is? Location?

    I decided to run the test because i"ve been having startup issues, no startup chime, sometimes no monitor startups, etc. Hence, I keep machine running 24/7, until software updates. Thanks.


    From search, it definitely sounds like a stick of memory, but which one. Do I have to pull a pair and run the test each time to find out the culprit? I think I bought from OWC a couple times, and one other time from a another vendro (kingston ram).

    Early 2008 MP, 2x2.8/Quad-Core Intel Xeon

    Going to take it to the genius bar tomorrow ...first time in 20 years I've had to take a Mac in for a repair. I was trying to figure out which stick of ram was bad (if any) by process of elimination, but eventually it wouldn't even give me the startup chime. I'm pretty sure I have at least one bad graphic card too, but now I've got nothing. Oh, well. I've just got the orig. 2 sticks of ram in it now.
