Gateway 840GM fails after 18 months


Looks pretty bad. My Gateway 840GM seems to have a memory problem. It was hanging during starts. I ran a memory check DOS utility and it fails pretty badly. I'm not sure whether its the DIMMs or the motherboard. I tried swapping DIMMs and it still fails. In desperation I brought it to BestBuy who will tell me whether its memory or motherboard for 70 bucks. In the meanwhile, I just gotta wait.
