My computer has locked up several more times since I replaced the aging copper tape inside the case. Granted, it is locking up far less frequently and under seemingly more random circumstances.

I ran MemTest86+ and have concluded my RAM is bad. I have tested four RAM modules, and only the two I was using failed any tests. In fact, they failed the tests so badly that MemTest86+ locked up as a result. That should be a Big Red Flag (TM).

Now the question is whether I would like to replace the memory and hope nothing else is wrong or give up and get a new laptop. It all depends on the prices for old memory.
