Memory write/read failure

I'm getting the following error on startup:
 
Memory write/read failure at 075C0664, read XXXXXX expecting XXXXXXX
Decreasing available memory
Memory address line failure
Decreasing available memory
The amount of system memory has changed
Strike F1 to continue, F2 to run setup.
 
Nothing is changed to config. This error occurs each time I start the computer.
 
Any help would be great.

Re: Memory write/read failure

Have you checked the diagnostic lights on the system to see if they are indicating a memory problem when you receive this error message?  Try running the Dell Diagnostic program on your memory modules.

Re: Memory write/read failure

If you have more than one memory module installed then try removing the module in the first slot and replace it with the other module.  If the system boots up without error then consider the "removed" module as being faulty.
